Critical success for the original Go the F*** to Sleep, a #1 best seller at: New York Times, Amazon.com, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, and many more! Seriously, Just Go to Sleep is the G-rated, traditional-sized, children's version of the book every parent has been talking about. Go the F*** to Sleep, the picture book for adults, became a cultural sensation by striking a universal chord for parents. Now, Adam Mansbach and Ricardo Cortd do a companion volume that lets kids in on the fun."
My Thoughts: Jessie and I were reading a couple of other books together and I decided we would give this one a try. I had read the first book and watched the Youtube video where Samuel L. Jackson is reading it. I absolutely loved the adult version. This version is still a book for adults it just doesn’t have all the cursing and bad language. This did bring back memories of those long nights where I couldn’t get Jessie to sleep. It’s reassuring to read what I had been feeling when I was going through this. Jessie didn’t get the story at all. She kept asking me while wouldn’t the little girl go to sleep. That said I personally don’t recommend this for children. I think that either book would be a great for a baby shower gift.
