Oh wow. Laughing with tears. tears are real though- because I have a kid who doesn't fucking eat :) ( )

Another hilarious story by Adam Mansbach. This one is very similar to Go the F*** to Sleep. Colorfully illustrated and a laugh out loud story.

Admittedly this is crass and I wouldn't talk like this to my kids, but the genius of this book and the original Go to F--k to Sleep is that it captures the exasperation every parent feels as they try to get their children to do what is best for them. This made me laugh. ( )

Not nearly as good as Go The Fuck To Sleep. I mean, it's tough to hit that level every time... ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
You Have to Fucking Eat By Adam Mansbach is a follow-up to his first book, Go the Fuck to Sleep. In my opinion the first book was more humorous. Both books offer many examples of behavior any parent has experienced. While I never instructed my son to sleep or eat in an expletive laced dialogue I can, definitely, relate.

Obviously this is a book for adults and is inappropriate to read to a child. I state that because I have read a few comments where people are appalled at this “children’s” book. Anyone who has reared a child knows the frustration of dinner time at one time or another. Since reading this latest work of Adam Mansbach I have learned there is an audio version read by Bryan Cranston. His previous book, Go the Fuck to Sleep, is read by Samuel Jackson.

I give this book a 3 ½ for crude humor but once you’ve read it you won’t read it again. Obviously not a classic, just an amusing foray for parents with picky eaters. ( )
