#FridayFiveChallenge #Food

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:

book

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!

HILARIOUS

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.

  1. So would you say this is a book only for adults or could it be read to children too? The book cover is definitely fun. I’m lucky my kids would always eat, even now as teenagers I tease them that they still demand food at 4 hourly intervals during the day. I don’t think I know anyone with a picky eater at the moment, so a PASS today, but one to recommend when appropriate.

  3. I’m happily past that stage too.

    Son #2 seemed to function on 45 minutes sleep at a time and simple *air* for nutrition. His younger years are mere fuzzy blurs to me.

    I wonder how I survived. Somehow I’m still not able to think it was funny.

  4. It’s funny. I was just thinking this morning that I don’t remember my son ever waking up in the middle of the night. Or not eating anything we gave him. But I don’t remember a lot about those years, the 70’s…
