A friend and loyal reader of our blog requested that I review this book, and what a great suggestion that was. Timely and certainly a fun book to review! Her reasoning was: “Because if you like it, I’m buying it for all my friends who have kids.”
With that kind of endorsement, who could resist? That is what we’re here for, after all.
If you live under a rock and haven’t heard about this new picture book, it started as a joke. Author Adam Mansbach posted the following status update on his Facebook profile one night: “Look out for my forthcoming children’s book, ‘Go the F**k to Sleep.’” It received an overwhelming response, so he began to draft some actual verses. Originally scheduled to be released in October, the release date was moved up several times due to demand and insane levels of pre-ordering. It was finally released June 14th. And it gets better: Samuel L. Jackson narrated the audio version, which is available for free on Audible.
