The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep (Free Audio Book)
The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep
If you haven’t heard this book yet, perhaps I should congratulate you, cause most probably you don’t have to go through daily routines of ‘reading 3 stories, and then another one, and then sing 1 song, oh and another one; oh need to go to toilet, oh my fluffy rabbit is not in my bed yet’ tucking-your-kid-in-bed cycle.
This book has gone viral in parenting forums since its first Swedish version published in 2014 and now translated into at least 7 languages.
Psychologists and therapists recommended the book as an effective way to help kids falling asleep with a ‘new, safe and innovative’ manner.
Instead of reading all kinds of how-to books, this self-published book, costing $12 on Amazon, is the new sleeping-guru that parents are turning to.
First Hand User Experience
And as a mum of a 2 year old who would like to shorten the bring-to-bed ritual from 1.5 hour to 15 minutes. I have of course contributed my $12 to Carl-Johan Forssén Ehrlin , author of the top-chart book and former psychologist.
Carefully opened the package, I read the book in one go with all excitement. Like many other bedtime stories, the book is designed to give reassurance to kids that they are loved, that they might have some anxiety but that is ok. What I like is that it has some elements of accustoming kids to allow wind down their body (literally as part of the story). I wondered how would my little one perceived it and needless to say, we tried on the very same night.
Our sleeping routine is always with 3 books. I know she would not give up before all books are read so we put ‘The Rabbit who wants to fall asleep’ as the last book.
Just as exciting as how she would look at any new books, we started the story telling, deliberately in a low and slow voice as suggested by some psychologists interviewed by newspapers about this book.
First 6 pages went on without any signs of tiredness. Inserting more yawning and lowering my voice, the magic seems started to kick in. Another 2 minutes passed by and she fell asleep!

She wanted the book again the next day for her nap and we did the same. It seems too good to be true but she fell asleep within 15 minutes again, breaking her record by half the time.
So far we are really happy with the book and have already recommended it to parents around us. We know how sleep deprivation hurts.

Other User Feedbacks
One of the comments from a parent who has tried the book 'I admit I was pretty sceptical. I thought perhaps my kids were a little old for such a simple story. But I followed the specific instructions for parents to emphasise certain words and yawn during particular passages, apparently to create the perfect combination of soporific words.'
I'm just an ordinary mum who knows how painful it is to spend hours soothing your little one to bed. If you are in the same shoe, try the book and see if it helps. If it doesn't, you still got a lovely story book to add onto your library.
Enjoy the story reading!
