My kids have NEVER fallen asleep while we read to them. Last night all THREE kids fell asleep before I had finished half of the book. Amazing!

Works every time so far

Each time I play this for my 2.5 year old I think it’s not going to work because he is extremely resistant to nap time and settling at bed time. So far he hasn’t stayed awake past the 30 minute mark even w his toddler tricks (more water, stroke my arm, I’m a carrot etc..)!

Well it puts me to sleep!

Bought this as we'd tried a similar story on YouTube and it worked wonders at getting the kids to sleep. I am slightly worried it's some sort of mkultra scheme but sometimes as parents that's a risk you're willing to take. Nice narration seems to work well, if my kids don't fall asleep I usually do.

Works a treat!

It has worked wonderfully well with my two grandchildren in preparing them for bed and sleep! I now just have to say ‘will we put on the tractor” and they are now conditioned to listen to the audio snd go to sleep before the end of the tape! They are both just under one year of age! Many many thanks.

Bloody brilliant.. Works everytime!! Love it!!

Love it love it love it! So my 18m old son understands most things (I think🤔!) he just can't speak yet, I was worried if I would be wasting £3.50 or something on a audible book that wouldn't work, this is my sons first audible book. now my son is very hyper, chatter box, and a busy body!!! He is not easy baby to switch off but the first time I did it via my phone.. As its not easy to ask alexa dot to start a new audio book always gets it wrong.. TIP!! instead of speaking to alexa turn ur brightness down in ur phone go to alexa app and control ur alexa from there with out you speaking.. It's important they don't think ur speaking to them or someone to distract them... So like I said first time I did it via my phone Bad move as he thought he was going to watch something so it made him alert and took longer but once repositioned him back down in his cot I just sat next to his cot and within 20 mins out like a light.. Seconded night out within 15 mins of the book been on third night same but that time he was listening intensively and was content and quite, before we put lullabies and classical music and meditation music on most of the night but the effects wear off when he wakes up again for a drink a silly o'clock in the morning, and sometimes it's very hard to get him back down but 4 nights now of little tractor and it's ACTUALLY WORKED!! He is independently falling asleep with minimal intervention... I just bought the bunny who wants to fall asleep.. Now it would be nice if you could have the option to put books on repeat or a chapter but I do have to go back into audible app and rewind it for alexa to play again only down side. I was doubtful it would work on him as he's still quite young to understand everything when I read the good reviews about the 2 Yr old little boy working for him.. I wasnt as optimistic but it really works!! So much so be warned it can make u sleepy too so put ur earphones in or something if u still need to clean up after the days mess lol 😂 only thing is I wish there was more books like this. P. S do not waste ur audiable credit just buy it it's cheaper that way.

Works like magic

My Grandson nodded off after about five minutes of listening to this. Just a lovely bit of comfort to go to sleep to.

Awesome book, the logic here...a stroke of genius

This story puts my son to sleep in less than 15 minutes(great accomplishment over here 😂👌 hes 3), with other books my son gets wrapped up and will stay up for a 45 minute treehouse book!
It essentially just says the sleepiest words over and over. "Fall asleep" "yawn" "tired" and "sleepy" is in almost every (if not all) sentence. I love it, he loves to hear as far as he can make it...I almost never make it myself 😂


Very clever concept A++

My granddaughter falls asleep well. I only wish it was a little longer because she would stay asleep longer.

Not well done

My children could not stand the voice of the narrator, and made me stop playing it right away. Sadly, it was a waste of money.
We've listened to this book, read by a woman with an English accent and they loved it!

magic!

We use this book every nap and every bed time now! It's so great in calming the kids down and putting them to sleep. The story is sweet and cute and the characters are nice. Normally puts adults to sleep also.

Sleeping is Believing

I was very skeptical that this book would perform as stated. It’s phenomenal! My youngster napped and so did I!!!

Fantastic for putting kids to sleep

Love the narrator's voice. Music narrator and story are the perfect combo for putting kids to sleep. Honestly I start getting drowsy myself when I listen. Highly recommend!

this really works!

my son always falls right asleep to this, usually no later than the middle of the story. we also have The elephant who wants to fall asleep and The rabbit who wants to fall asleep. this book will give you sanity at bedtime. and I sometimes use it to help relax my mind before bed as well.

Where has this been for the last two years!

My child who is 2.5 years and never slept through the night and takes usually 1.5-2 hours to fall asleep, has fallen asleep in the 40 minute time frame and it’s a miracle. It’s so soothing and I almost fall asleep too. I recommend the audio book versus the reading book.

I fall asleep too if I stay in the room! Excellent purchase! I’m going around telling every parent I know about this because it is awesome, knocks my kids out so fast and my 4 year old has requested it every night since we bought it.

Excellent story and narration, even for adults

The storyline is great, the narrator's voice is soothing, it even helps my husband to "just fall asleep". It would be great if there were more like this!
