The cover of Adam Mansbach's new "children's book for adults."
June 17, 2011 Even the most loving and dedicated parents are sometimes annoyed by children who refuse to go to bed. Adam Mansbach captures that frustration in Go the [Expletive] to Sleep, a colorfully illustrated 'children's book for adults.' Some readers find the book humorous but others may be appalled. Host Michel Martin speaks with Adam Mansbach to learn more about his controversial book and what it means for parents — especially with Father's Day just around the corner. Note: this conversation references language that listeners may find offensive.
