The Surprising Thing That Will Make Children Fall Asleep at Bedtime

Katie Sweeney

One of the most difficult tasks parents with young children face is that of the bedtime ritual. For some reason, many kids just don’t want to go to sleep. However, Fortune is reporting on an astonishing new book that puts kids to sleep in minutes. The book, The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep, is currently the top-selling tome on Amazon. Written by a Swedish psychologist Carl-Johan Forssen Ehrlin, the 22-page story tells the tale of Roger the Rabbit, who is trying to catch up on his sleep. Roger asks his friends Sleep Snail and Uncle Yawn to help him out. According to Fortune, “the focus of the tome is to use meandering sentence structure and specific words to induce kids into a hazy stupor.” The author, who says reading his book is “the verbal equivalent of rocking your child to sleep,” recommends that parents read the story slowly, methodically, and with the occasional yawn added in for good measure. While I don’t know anyone with the book, I am curious to see if it actually works!

Little kids need cuddly blankets to sleep with. These are the ones I like to gift my friends.
