The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep – Book Review

I received a copy of “The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep” ($16.99 value) in exchange for this promotion. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.”


Having trouble with little ones falling asleep?  If so, check out Carl-Johan Forssén Ehrlin’s new book The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep, which is a follow-up to his #1 international bestseller, The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep.

The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep comes exclusively with “Instructions to the Reader” on how to use this book.  In this section of the book it states…”This book has been written to have a sleep-promoting effect, and therefore sometimes uses unusual language in order to help the child relax and fell ready to sleep.”  It was also recommended as a “WARNING…To use the book with caution.  It may cause drowsiness or an unintended catnap and to never read this book out loud close to someone driving any type of vehicle or engage in any other activity that requires wakefulness!”

This book is actually a longer than expected picture book story following Ellen the Elephant on a journey through a magical forest that leads to sleep recommended for ages 3-7 (preschool to 2nd grade).   In this unique sleepy book, there are words in BOLD to be emphasized by the reader and also there are emotions highlighted for the reader to yawn as recommended to help along the sleepiness of the story.

In the back of the book, there were also “Tips from the Author” on sleeping and “Success Factors” to take into account when reading this book to your youngster.

If your household is struggling with nighttime routines or downtime to fall asleep in a timely manner, The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep, may be a perfect addition to your family library to smooth out bedtime.  This book is also available as an audiobook with soothing voices, which may also be a great option for your family.
