Summary

The bestselling Go the F*** to Sleep has been translated into over thirty languages worldwide. Now it is finally translated for Jamaican and other Caribbean parents of the world.

Go de Rass 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, California Book Award - winning author Adam Mansbach's verses perfectly capture the familiar - and unspoken - tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations and laugh at their absurdity.

Go de Rass to Sleep is beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny - a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.

Please note: This audiobook is in Jamaican Patois.

DWL! Mi love dis book yah!

Ask the daughter of Jamaican parents, I Can Only Imagine my parents frustration trying to put me to sleep, and I imagine my parents reading this book to me. I definitely think that this is a cute short story book that many adults will enjoy about Parenthood.
