It works

The story is a bit strange but it really worked to get my daughter to fall asleep in her bed. She has fought sleep as if it is her life's purpose since she was newborn. She's almost 3 years old so I'm thrilled that we have finally found something that actually helps.

story is amazing but audible spoils the ending

The story and the narrator is amazing and really helps our children to fall asleep. The trouble is right at the end after a very gentle fade out comes loudly: 'Audible hopes you've enjoyed this story' which wakes the children up again.
A similar thing happens after the first chapter (alternative narrator) although this time it repeats to the beginning introducing the author etc even if you set the sleep timer to stop after this chapter.
Audible should be far more sensitive to the nature of this story which is designed to help children settle down and go to sleep.
Audible please fix this, you are spoiling a great story.

Brilliant sleep aid for all ages!

To avoid the end 'this is audible' statement that someone complained about, use sleep mode!

Yaaassss

What did you like most about The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep?

It puts my 1 year old to sleep in 20 mins

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep?

It sometimes puts me to sleep

Which character – as performed by Rachel Bavidge and Roy McMillan – was your favourite?

This book isnt really character driven

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moment my kid falls asleep, usually right around the bit where they meet uncle yawn and he reads his spell

Any additional comments?

I used to listen to a version on youtube but it was taken down because of copyright infringement, I scoured the internets for the same reading but could only find crappy readings. This one is very good, but not quite as awesome as the female voice my kid is used to. She even added the yawns when appropriate! This version is still very good and does the job! I nearly fell off my chair when I saw the video had been taken down on youtube, I thought I would never get my daughter to sleep again. Thank you, thank you amazon, thank you to Carl-Johan Forssén Ehrlin and the narraters! I am eternally grateful to you all for my sanity!

To parents that say this doesnt work. I had to try at least 10 times before it started to work. Eventually my kid started falling asleep towards the end of the reading, then it got earlier on and earlier on in the reading and now she falls into a deep sleep, where I can easily transfer her to her crib within 20 mins. This kid took 2 hours to fall asleep before this!

Sleep becomes me...

I have always slept poorly- ADHD does that to a brain. Anyway, The Rabbit Who Wants To Fall Asleep helps me drift off relatively easily.

Doesn't work on my five year old though, who declared to be 'boring because story bunnies aren't as fun as live bunnies'.

great way to fall asleep

me and my daughter loved it and it does have the desired effect of making us both fall asleep. lovely story and a meditative way of storytelling is the trick . I can highly recommend it

Works but be patient & don't have high expectation

It took the first chapter and 10 mins of the second for my boys (2 & 1) to fall asleep. At one point I almost fell asleep until my 1 year old decided to try to play with his brother who was trying to talk back to the story. I understand for some parents this isn't going to work at all. my youngest is fairly strong willed and usually demands to nurse before sleep. He didn't and I am thankful as we are trying to wean him off. The book its self is terrible but it is after all a form of hypnosis and it works. I would reccomend the audio book over just buying the book as it has a strange pattern to it which may be frustrating for first time users.

All in all for us with lights off and no distractions it worked. Best of luck to anyone else trying.

Wow! two kids calmly off to the land of nod

first time we've listen to this at bed time and it hasn't got them to sleep any quicker but they were calmer. generally a more relaxing bed time. Can't wait to see if it works any quicker tomorrow night....
