Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities.

We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community.

Go the Fuck to Sleep

Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
Go the Fuck to Sleep
"Go the Fuck to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don't always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, it captures the familiar -- and unspoken -- tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night ... You probably should not read it to your children"--p. [4] of cover.

I just don’t get it. Who reads this? Who do you read it to?

Surely you can market a book better than this.

This was hilarious for an adult and an adult audience.

Very cute and funny! Needed this when my kids were little, and never wanted to go to sleep. I love how a lot of kids fight sleep yet get up very early; yet when they are teens, want to sleep until noon or later. At least, mine did

This book is not for Kids! It is for adults only! It is a satirical funny book about the frustrations of getting your kids to bed. It does not teach kids to use the "f" word, because it is not for kids. The kids version of this book is called "Seriously just go to sleep" which doesn't have the "f" word in the title or body of the book.

I wonder why a bedtime book for putting your kids away is called go the f**k asleep. Its just a bit too unusual.
( this book is making kids learn the "F" word )
