Go The F*&k To Sleep

This is not your average bed time story.  In fact, this is not even meant for kids.
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 off to dreamland. Honest, profane, and affectionate, Adam Mansbach's verses and Ricardo Cortés' illustrations perfectly capture the familiar—and unspoken—tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night, and open up a conversation about parenting in the process. Beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny, Go the F*&k to Sleep is a perfect gift for parents new, old, or expectant. Here is a sample verse:

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 f*&k to sleep.

The book hasn't been released yet, but I can't wait to thumb through a copy.  The concept is hilarious.

I like the idea of running a fun and playful social experiment and so I've got free kids books for all at pdoink.com. From my side of this equation – I think that bedtime is just a great time for parents to connect with their children in helping themselves and their children learn and grow together. You can see the audio version of these on YouTube if you like.
