    Story
    "Elementary and Middle School kids zonked out"
    Where does The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    For my kids, it's number 1. Though they don't typically have trouble falling asleep, they love to listen to it and become entranced.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Uncle Yawn! I have the compulsion to yawn every time his name is said.


    What about Fred Sanders and Kathleen McInerney ’s performance did you like?

    I like that the kids can choose either storyteller. Mr. Sanders' performance is more subdued which my son and I like. Ms. McInerney's performance is more animated which my daughter likes.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The extreme reaction to this book is some serious shut-eye.... which is the point. ;)

    Story
    "Over and Over and Over Again"
    What did you love best about The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep?

    That it works? My 5 year old has had trouble sleeping for the past 2 years now, and I bought this book on a whim one night, and from then on, she's been out like a light before the book ends. We listen to it every night.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The story itself really isn't interesting. I don't think it's meant to be, though. It's supposed to be quiet, and soothing.


    Have you listened to any of Fred Sanders and Kathleen McInerney ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Great to help me sleep!"

    I probably have played this about 10+ times in the wee hours after I toss and turn but just couldn't fall asleep. So far I haven't made it to the end yet, so I suppose it works!

    Story
    "The Perfectly Boring Book"

    I have struggled with poor sleep for the majority of my life. At 32, I am willing to try most anything to get to sleep and stay asleep including children's books. This is the most relaxing and uninteresting story imaginable.

    "Annoying but effective"

    It's long and boring and awkwardly worded, but by golly it actually gets the kids (ages 6 and 3) to sleep.

    The audio book smooths out some of the less coherent sentences from the written ebook, so that's a plus. There are 2 narrators: a man and a woman, listed as "chapter 1" and "chapter 2" so you get the same story twice over.

    Story
    "Has helped improved my sleep issues dramatically."

    I bought this book on a recommendation. I have trouble sleeping sometimes because my mind won't stop thinking. This book has helped me fall asleep by quieting my mind. It doesn't work all the time but a large % of the time. I use it a few times a week.

    Story
    "Handicap Child"

    This story works on me but it keeps my child wide awake because he loves the story. He laughs every time the speaker yawns. The book has two chapters. One with a male narrator and the same story with a female narrator. We listen to the whole thing at least 2 times a night. When the first time is over, he wakes me up to run it again. He takes a prescription sleeping pill and still, we listen to the stories all the way through.

    "a believer"

    I was sceptical about this book but it works every night for my kids. I like the audio, I can or it on in each of my kids' rooms and they go to sleep.
