Weary parents are rejoicing. The book topping the best seller list at is no longer Harper Lee’s new book, but a self-published tale about a rabbit who wants to fall asleep.

The Rabbit Who Wants To Fall Asleep” is a children’s book written by a Swedish psychologist who has harnessed simple techniques through the written word to send kids off to dreamland–and it works.

The book includes cues for parents to yawn, use a slow, calm voice in places and emphasize certain words to lull their children into sleep.Dr Suess What Kind of Pet Screenshot PBS News

“It helps the child to focus and makes them a part of the story so that they fall asleep along with the rabbit,” author Carl-Johan Forssen Ehrlin told the Telegraph.

Ehrlin spent three years getting all the elements in the right order in the 26-page paperback, and the reviews from parents have been impressive.

“Bedtime just went from taking 2-3 hours to taking 12 mins,” one parent wrote on Amazon. “We made it to the middle of page 2.”Tree-book-tree-Screengrab (1)
