This Book Room: Reasons My Kid Is Crying
My thoughts: Oh.My.Hotcakes. This book is flat-out funny and in some ways, sad. Included are pictures of kids crying which is heart wrenching, but the reasons they are crying... is just pull-your-pants-down funny. One of my personal favorites was "It wasn't raining inside." Awesome!
As a parent to a toddler (gulp), I can attest to the fact that kids will cry for the most insane reasons. One of Bug's favorite reasons to launch into a full-blown tantrum in .000001 seconds is when I firmly tell Preston "No!" when he is being aggressive toward her. Really? You don't want me to tell your brother not to eat you? Okay, fine, then. Be kitty chow.
Alas, kids will be kids. Kudos to Greg for thinking of archiving his kid's craziest stunts so when his kid has kids, he has photographic evidence of what he is going to experience. And let me tell you: it's not pretty. But it is hilarious.
Thanks to WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
