Book of the Week for February 16 – February 22
Why it’s interesting:
Have a kid? Ever been tired? Then, yeah, this book is for you. I highly recommend downloading both the Kindle version and the Audible version. Put the screaming kid in its room. Pour yourself a big glass of wine. Put your headphones in. And enjoy.
Caveat: Eventually, the book will be over and the kid that refuses to go to sleep will probably still be screaming. But you won’t be quite so on the verge of tears yourself.
Go the F**k 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. Beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny, Go the Fuck to Sleep is a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.
