For this week’s Friday Five Challenge, “food” was not my first search. Apparently “Imbolc” is not a popular subject in fiction, at least popular enough for a book cover to jump out at me and say “Yes! Pick me!”
So I switched to “food” because yes, I’m still on a special diet and obsessing on all the foods I cannot eat.
And I found this:
I love this! Having raised a sleepless child, I greatly enjoyed Adam Mansbach’s earlier book “Go the F**k to Sleep.” My sleepless child also would not eat, so naturally this book speaks to me as a (formerly) frustrated parent. Not something I would actually read to a young child, mind you, but the laughs I’d get from reading it myself would soothe the frustrations as well as remind me that parents of food-resistant kids are not alone.
I’m also not alone in praise of this book ~ 247 reviewers gave it 4.6 out of 5 stars:
I was a picky eater as a child so I got this as a birthday gift for my dad. He was in tears he was laughing so hard. It’s so hysterically relatable!
The perfect book for over frustrated parents. The illustrations are adorable. Definitely a favorite
Prices on Amazon range from $1.95 for audio to $11.95 for hardback. So, BUY or PASS? Well, for the right person at the right time, definitely BUY. But for me right now? PASS ~ I’m happily past this parenting phase.
