This Grandma Bought Her 6-Year-Old Granddaughter An Inappropriate Book By Accident And Everyone Can't Stop Laughing

Don't judge a book by its cover!

This is Tiffany, her husband, and her three adorable kids. Her oldest, Emmersyn, is 6, and her mom told BuzzFeed News she is already an "an avid reader."

So of course, Tiffany's mom is always keeping an eye out for books for her granddaughter. About three weeks ago, Tiffany said her mom was shopping in Barnes & Noble and spotted a book called "If Animals Could Talk."

At first glance, the book looked perfect for little Emmersyn. How sweet! Tiffany's mom decided to buy it.

She gave it to Tiffany, and, recently, Emmersyn sat down to read it aloud with her dad. The first page talked about how gorillas like bananas. Everything seemed fine.

But then they turned the page, and Emmersyn tried to sound out...this.


This is perfect for kids!

Tiffany said her husband asked her if her mom had gotten the book as a joke. When she said no, he showed it to her.

Tiffany decided to share her mom's mishap on Facebook and Twitter. People couldn't handle the adorable mistake.

I’m dying. My mom bought this book for my 6 year old and I just called to ask if she had actually opened the book.…

They said it totally made their day.

@Tiffany1985B Tiffany, as I wipe tears from eyes and catch my breath from laughing too hard I want to thank you for making my day.

And they totally loved it.

@Tiffany1985B I love this more than anything I have seen in weeks!!!

Others said they needed to read it to their own kids.

@Tiffany1985B I would literally read this to my children though.

And some parents had similar experiences.

@Tiffany1985B @BoreGuru My daughter received the "Go The F*ck To Sleep" book as a gag. 6 yo Grdaughter found it and…

One of the co-authors of the book, Josh Cassidy, even saw her tweet and commented about it.

@Tiffany1985B 🙈 haha. I appreciate Granny's taste. Maybe you can regift on your 6 yr old's 18th? 😉 Glad it gave you…

Tiffany said that she was happy to give everyone on Twitter a good laugh.

As for her mom, she said she has "learned her lesson": Don't judge a book by its cover!
