Here are our top ten recommendations if you are looking for the best books to read in Pop Culture Art. We have made sure our list is diverse to cater to the interests of different types of readers.

1. Go the F**k to Sleep


Top 10 Best Books to Read in Pop Culture Art - August 2021

A Reader's Digest "25 Funniest Books of All Time" "Nothing has driven home a certain truth about my generation, which is approaching the apex of its childbearing years, quite like this." -- The New Yorker "A parenting zeitgeist" -- Washington Post "A hilarious take on that age-old problem: getting the beloved child to go to sleep." -- National Public Radio "A new Bible for weary parents" -- New York Times "Resonates powerfully with almost everyone" -- Boston Globe "This children's book parody earns its place on the list by being a much-needed bit of catharsis that every parent needs." -- Fatherly , one of the 10 Best Parenting Books of the Decade " Go the F**k to Sleep challenges stereotypes, opens up prototypes, and acknowledges that shared sense of failure that comes to all parents who weary of ever getting their darling(s) to sleep and briefly resuming the illusion of a life of their own." -- Midwest Book Review Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don't always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, California Book Award-winning author Adam Mansbach's verses perfectly capture the familiar--and unspoken--tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations, and laugh at their absurdity. With illustrations by Ricardo Cortes, Go the F**k to Sleep is beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny--a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children. Seriously, Just Go to Sleep, a children's book inspired by Go the F**k to Sleep and appropriate for kids of all ages, is also available, as well as Seriously, You Have to Eat for finicky ones everywhere!
