As much as I have heard great things about this book, my almost 5 year old daughter is immune to it. She enjoys listening to it, but the magic beans aren't working on her. She is just as wired, thirsty, not tired and restless as she is any other night with or without any other book. The story isn't too bad, though the reading style is odd; which is great if it helps kids sleep, just not mine. I think she is broken. Go the "F" to sleep is more appropriate for her.....

I have read this book to my son 3 nights now and it has not put him to sleep. I am giving it one star because he enjoys hearing it, but as far as sleeping..... no luck!

Every time I have read this book, my children have fallen asleep. Even at nine years of age. My niece who was spending the night and couldn't sleep, crying to go home, was asleep by the end of the book and saved a two a.m. run for her mother.

i found this book very long winded and difficult to read fluidly enough to relax my child. She did enjoy hearing her name inserted into the story. I will try a few more times but right now it did not get my child to sleep.

My son has anxiety. He has a hard time falling asleep and sleeping restfully. We started using this book and it always helps him to relax enough to sleep more soundly.

I was skeptical about this, but my kids are terrible about sleeping and I figured it was worth a shot. I'M SO GLAD I HAVE THIS BOOK! My kids are falling asleep faster and doing a better job sleeping through the night. Not only that, but my four-year-old likes the story. She realized what the story accomplishing ("Is this book supposed to make me tired? Because I'm really tired now.") but still asks me to read it every night. I'm very pleased with this book.

I'm a nanny and take care of a 2 year old girl. Usually for nap time I have to rock her for 30 minutes before she even shuts her eyes! But today after reading this book she was asleep within 5 minutes of the story being over! I'm so glad I tried it with her. We will absolutely be reading it again!
