Once Upon A Time, The End (Asleep In 60 Seconds) - Geoffrey Kloske

Summary: These hilarious, super-short fairy tales and nursery rhymes are guaranteed to make any child fall fast asleep--fast. (Summary from Powells.com - Image from amazon.com)

My Review: I was introduced to this book at a Reading Council presentation during a teacher inservice. I fell in love after reading just one of the short Fairytales. The premise of this story is a father trying to get his child to sleep quickly. We've all read story after story to our kids at bedtime (or remember your parents trying to accomplish this impossible task). This book allows you to get through many stories and quickly! The best part of the book is the under current of humor for adults. Kids don't usually get all the slight jokes, but adults do. It makes it fun for both kids and parents. Really, you should give this book a try, at least for a man's perspective on familiar and beloved stories.

My Rating: 5 stars

Sum it up: Fairytales and nusery rhymes with a short, new twist.

Is this a fairly new book? I can't find it at my library... :)

I think it is a newer book. Just a sec; I'll run upstairs and check the copyright.

The copyright was 2005, so newer...
