New children's book that helps kids fall asleep is now a #1 best-seller.

Sweet dreams are made of this.

The reviews are pretty wild: "The first time I read this to my 2-year-old, she fell asleep in under 20 minutes!" said one Amazon reviewer. "I have already recommended this book to all my friends with kids. Simply amazing."

Goodnight, moon.


"I wouldn't have believed it unless I saw it with my own eyes! 3 kids asleep within 10 minutes!" said another.

Kids asleep in 10 minutes from ... a book? WHAT IS THIS BOOK — MAGIC?

It's called "The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep," and it's got the brains of a psychologist behind it.

From the cover of "The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep."

Written by Swedish author and behavioral scientist, Carl-Johan Forssén Ehrlin, "The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep" was created with a deeper purpose than your average children's book: to help your kid go to sleep ... with science.

"The tale gives suggestions to the child's unconscious mind to sleep," Ehrlin says on the book's site. "The Rabbit who wants to fall asleep works perfectly either at naps during daytime or home at night, in a group or alone."

With sleepy characters like Uncle Yawn and a special language pattern used throughout, he may be onto something.

Parents who experience issues with getting their kids to sleep will try just about anything — and for good reason. This issue affects the parents' health and well-being, too.

A survey by Worlds Apart shows that parents will lose an average of 16 nights of sleep per month in the first three years of a child's life. It also showed that 1 in 6 parents lost the most sleep during the time they moved their toddler from a cot to their first big bed.

If a book could actually help minimize that ... BINGO.

Time for bed? HAHAHAHAHA. Image via Thinkstock.

And while it may not be a cure for everyone — or even work for them for that matter — it does help start a different conversation in our world where "how to get your kid to sleep" pulls up millions and millions of results on Google. True story.

The book is now a #1 best-seller on Amazon. People are reading it, absorbing it, and even sleeping because of it.

From the book's Facebook page to its plentiful reviews, parents are sharing their experiences using the book: many of them successful. You can try it for yourself by purchasing the book on Amazon.

Here's to trying new things and figuring it all out together. And who knows? Maybe this book will help sleepy parents of the world gain some much deserved Zzzzzzzs.

People can be stuck for hours in a terminal waiting for their flights, many of them alone as they travel to see family or make an end-of-the-year-business trip.

Despite controversial-but-compelling evidence that homework takes time away from families with little to no appreciable benefit for students, kids continue to slog through hours of school work outside the time they spend in the classroom. And despite evidence that small acts of kindness can infect a community like a positive virus, far too many kids are on either the giving or receiving end of unkind bullying on a regular basis.

Perhaps that's why an elementary school in Ireland has decided to do something radical—ditch all homework for the month of December and assign kids "acts of kindness" instead.

Brace yourselves, folks, because this is almost too friggin' adorable to handle.

A 911 call can be a scary thing, and an emergency call from a dad having chest pains and trouble breathing is no exception. But thankfully, an exchange between that dad's 5-year-old daughter and 911 dispatcher Jason Bonham turned out to be more humor than horror. If you missed hearing the recording that has repeatedly gone viral since 2010, you have to hear it now. It's perfectly timeless.
