Go The F**k To Sleep (A Children's Book)

I don't think Baby Week would be complete without a proper book review.  If I am going to review a "children's" book, it is going to be one that is something new and different.  I am pretty sure I have found it here.

First of all, let me say that I actually listened to this as an audiobook.  Samuel L. Jackson was the narrator, and no one in this world can drop an F-bomb like he can.  I don't even think that is debatable.  As you can probably tell, this is actually a child's book for adults, and boy, did it make me giggle.


If you have a child, or have ever even babysat for one, you know how difficult it can be to get them to stay in bed and go to sleep.  All the excuses, all of the procrastinating, all of the ways they try to pull one over on us to stay up and hang out just a little longer.  This book addresses the situation head on.  In fact, it captures the moment to a T.

I would give this book 5 stars because it made me laugh...hard!  Maybe it was Samuel L. Jackson's delivery.  Maybe it was the pure genius concept of poking fun at every parent's ultra-relatable dilemma. However, if the F-bomb offends you, this book will not be your cup of tea.  If you can look past swear words, it is a cleverly written little book.  Definitely worth the 6 minutes it took to listen to it via

I just bought this book for my brother! My nephew is so wild at bedtime. My favorite part is when the author just gives up and says that he's a shitty parent. It's sooo funny.
