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..)!

Surprised it worked

Might be coincidence but after 20 minutes the overly active baby fell asleep.
Slow and sleep inducing narrator. Recommended if you're running out of options and want to try a new one.

It works every time.

I purchased this book for my son to help him fall asleep but use it myself... A winner every time, I fall asleep before even getting mid way. A lovely story, read by a very soothing voice.

A must for all parents

These stories are a must have for children who struggle to fall asleep. We need one for children of 6 plus as we have found our little ones sadly grow out of them to fast.

You may fall asleep too

Only listened a couple of times and I'm actually not sure if we've finished the story? But it has seemed to work a treat so far (for both of us).

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++

Be careful to read which version you purchase

We accidentally purchased the UK version. There is nothing wrong with it, but our kiddo said he can't fall asleep to the story because the accent is not soothing.

It works!

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

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!

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!
