#FridayFiveChallenge #Food

For this week’s Friday Five Challenge, “food” was not my first search. Apparently “Imbolc” is not a popular subject in fiction, at least popular enough for a book cover to jump out at me and say “Yes! Pick me!”

So I switched to “food” because yes, I’m still on a special diet and obsessing on all the foods I cannot eat.

And I found this:


I love this! Having raised a sleepless child, I greatly enjoyed Adam Mansbach’s earlier book “Go the F**k to Sleep.” My sleepless child also would not eat, so naturally this book speaks to me as a (formerly) frustrated parent. Not something I would actually read to a young child, mind you, but the laughs I’d get from reading it myself would soothe the frustrations as well as remind me that parents of food-resistant kids are not alone.

I’m also not alone in praise of this book ~ 247 reviewers gave it 4.6 out of 5 stars:

I was a picky eater as a child so I got this as a birthday gift for my dad. He was in tears he was laughing so hard. It’s so hysterically relatable!


The perfect book for over frustrated parents. The illustrations are adorable. Definitely a favorite

Prices on Amazon range from $1.95 for audio to $11.95 for hardback. So, BUY or PASS? Well, for the right person at the right time, definitely BUY. But for me right now? PASS ~ I’m happily past this parenting phase.

  1. So would you say this is a book only for adults or could it be read to children too? The book cover is definitely fun. I’m lucky my kids would always eat, even now as teenagers I tease them that they still demand food at 4 hourly intervals during the day. I don’t think I know anyone with a picky eater at the moment, so a PASS today, but one to recommend when appropriate.

  3. I’m happily past that stage too.

    Son #2 seemed to function on 45 minutes sleep at a time and simple *air* for nutrition. His younger years are mere fuzzy blurs to me.

    I wonder how I survived. Somehow I’m still not able to think it was funny.

  4. It’s funny. I was just thinking this morning that I don’t remember my son ever waking up in the middle of the night. Or not eating anything we gave him. But I don’t remember a lot about those years, the 70’s…
