The other version of this book was for adults which made it funny. This one wasn't very interesting, and the last few pages made the story choppy, where two different set of parents fall asleep?. It is not a book I could read over and over again to my children/ ( )

This is a cute children's book which would be a perfect bedside companion for your child's room. I will be passing this on to my grandchild. ( )

The original book was fantastic for children who did not fully understand the words being said to them. This cleaned up version has the same feel but is appropriate for children who now repeat the words their parents say. The children recognize the situation presented in the story, and are entertained, although maybe not likely to sleep after reading it. ( )

This is the cleaned up version of a book that I found a bit tiresome for adults. This one I enjoyed thoroughly. Preschool children immediately recognize exactly what is going on, and find it quite entertaining.

Seriously, Just Go To Sleep is the kid-friendly version of the brilliant satirical children’s book Go The F—k To Sleep. While the original book was a freaking hilarious read, it really was purely for an adult crowd and should absolutely not be read to an actual child. What makes Seriously, Just Go To Sleep so effective is that it can be enjoyed by all ages, while still maintaining the book’s overall message and tone, just by removing one swear word. A simple change from the original creates a genius new book that can be appreciated by parent and child alike. Highly recommended. ( )
