Go the F*ck to Sleep! Best Bedtime Book EVER!
Man, there are people in the world who understand me. The dude who wrote the book “Go the Fuck to Sleep“ is one of them. Have you heard of it? Wells, lemme tell ya about it.
Adam Mansbach was tryna get his kids to go to bed one night, and it took over 2 hours for them to finally go to sleep. So he got on Facebook and jokingly told folks he was gonna write a book called “Go the Fuck to Sleep.” His Facebook friends who were parents understood his bedtime struggles and were all enthused about it. So he decided to write this book, which is like a bedtime story we wished we could read our kids at night to get our frustration across. Then he got his friend, illustrator Ricardo Cortés, to make up sweet drawings for it.
And TA DA!!! This genius book was born. And parents and othermommies and daddies everywhere rejoiced. Sometimes, you just want to tell your kids to shut up and “go the fuck to sleep.” Of course, oftentimes, you don’t but it be in your SPIRIT, with nowhere to go. Now, someone put your thoughts on paper.
What’s dope about the book is that it’s all sweet (when it isn’t dropping the f-bomb) and it reads like a Dr. Seuss with a potty mouth booth. Here’s an excerpt:
The cats nestle close to their kittens now.
The lambs have laid down with the sheep.
You’re cozy and warm in your bed, my dear
Please go the fuck to sleep
Do you see why this book is now a bestseller??? It is genius.
Then to put the cherry on the sundae that is the awesomeness of this book, there’s an audiobook version of it, narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, everyone’s favorite potty mouth. And it’s awesomeness was triplicated.
Getchu a piece. While rocking headphones if you’re around kids or at work.
iLIVE!!! Who better to pass on the message that you need to get your ass to sleep besides Sam Jackson, who ain’t never seen a cuss word he couldn’t utter.
This is everything every parent needs! I’m not advocating that you read this to your kids (nor will I judge you if you do). But even if you need to just read it to yourself after an especially tough bedtime… it is perfectly alright.
I might have to buy this book for my Future Mini Luvvies. But watch them go to school talmbout:
Teacher: Good morning, Mini Luvvie! You look well-rested today!
Mini Luvvie: *in a sweet 4 year old falsetto* I am! I went to bed early last night because Mommy told me to “go the fuck to sleep!”
Teacher: O___O I need to make a phonecall.
DON’T BE JUDGING MY PARENTING!!! Chile…
Shoo… my nightowl self. Someone needs to read ME this book. Up for all hours of the night. “Luvvie, go the fuck to sleep!” Who wants to read this to me and tuck me in? Not you. I’ont like you. But you? Yeah… you can do it. lolol
So… who’s buying this book asaptually? Just me? lol
It’s available at Amazon.com.
