Have You Seen These?


This series of books is very similar to The Dangerous Book for Boys and The Daring Book for Girls. I bought The Boys' Book: How to be the Best at Everything and The Girls' Book a couple of weeks ago and the kids love them. They are a smaller version, less detailed, and easier for younger children to read. Jackson (1st grade) can read them easily. Last night at the school book fair, I picked up The Moms' Book: For the Mom Who's Best at Everything. (And I see there's a Dads' Book and a Family Book coming later this year.)

I'm thinking these might be the birthday presents that I give my nieces and nephews this year.

On the health front: Sawyer is nursing and drinking well, but not eating much. He never had a fever and was never fatigue or lethargic. He had a little diarrhea, but I think it was a one-time "flukey puke," as Miss Chris said.
I, on the other hand, have a quivery belly today. Maybe I just need to eat something...

Those books look great!

I'm glad that Sawyer is no worse, but I'm VERY sorry to hear that YOU aren't doing well.

We checked those books from the library a couple of weeks ago and the kids loved them!

I hope you are feeling OK today!

I hope you are ok, we had a v contagious sickness/ diarhorea thing the other week (but I live in the UK) so you can't have got it from us!!

The books do look good though, I've seen them over here as well.

those books look like so much fun! My oldest boy is starting to try to read & wants "Big Kid" books. I should go to the library and look these up! Thanks for the idea. :)

Im a new reader (since the end of last year). I have the Boys Book, and let me tell you..its great. Im 21, and some of the stuff in there I enjoy. How to read someone's mind is awesome...that trick works and it is hilarious!

I need to check those books out. Sounds like something I might like for the kids.

Sorry to hear you are not feeling so good.

Aaack! I hadn't seen these books...and I just figured out why I haven't visited in a gazillion years. Somehow you are not on my bloglines any longer??? I'll add you again and be stopping by regularly.

Much love friend!
