OK, this is a new bedtime story by Adam Mansbach, in board-book format, showing a toddler cozying up for sleep with animals, by moonlight, on the cover. The title?
I kind of love this. Because really? No matter what you actually do when it comes to bedtime and nighttime, parents do have these moments, being, yk.
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 fuck to sleep.
I would write more about this, but my daughter is currently doing her best impersonation (im-pigeon-ation?) of the pigeon in _Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus_, except of course she doesn’t want to drive a bus, but play on an Ipad. Too bad Mansbach’s new book isn’t out yet, or I’d whip it out right this second!
