The story and the narrator is amazing and really helps our children to fall asleep. The trouble is right at the end after a very gentle fade out comes loudly: 'Audible hopes you've enjoyed this story' which wakes the children up again.
A similar thing happens after the first chapter (alternative narrator) although this time it repeats to the beginning introducing the author etc even if you set the sleep timer to stop after this chapter.
Audible should be far more sensitive to the nature of this story which is designed to help children settle down and go to sleep.
Audible please fix this, you are spoiling a great story.
To avoid the end 'this is audible' statement that someone complained about, use sleep mode!
I have always slept poorly- ADHD does that to a brain. Anyway, The Rabbit Who Wants To Fall Asleep helps me drift off relatively easily.
Doesn't work on my five year old though, who declared to be 'boring because story bunnies aren't as fun as live bunnies'.
me and my daughter loved it and it does have the desired effect of making us both fall asleep. lovely story and a meditative way of storytelling is the trick . I can highly recommend it
It puts my 1 year old to sleep in 20 mins
It sometimes puts me to sleep
This book isnt really character driven
The moment my kid falls asleep, usually right around the bit where they meet uncle yawn and he reads his spell
I used to listen to a version on youtube but it was taken down because of copyright infringement, I scoured the internets for the same reading but could only find crappy readings. This one is very good, but not quite as awesome as the female voice my kid is used to. She even added the yawns when appropriate! This version is still very good and does the job! I nearly fell off my chair when I saw the video had been taken down on youtube, I thought I would never get my daughter to sleep again. Thank you, thank you amazon, thank you to Carl-Johan Forssén Ehrlin and the narraters! I am eternally grateful to you all for my sanity!
To parents that say this doesnt work. I had to try at least 10 times before it started to work. Eventually my kid started falling asleep towards the end of the reading, then it got earlier on and earlier on in the reading and now she falls into a deep sleep, where I can easily transfer her to her crib within 20 mins. This kid took 2 hours to fall asleep before this!
first time we've listen to this at bed time and it hasn't got them to sleep any quicker but they were calmer. generally a more relaxing bed time. Can't wait to see if it works any quicker tomorrow night....
The story is a bit strange but it really worked to get my daughter to fall asleep in her bed. She has fought sleep as if it is her life's purpose since she was newborn. She's almost 3 years old so I'm thrilled that we have finally found something that actually helps.
