Here’s what happened when a family of five reflected on the true meaning of this country’s most celebrated sporting event.
Another Super Bowl is nearly upon us. And folks young and old are all scrambling to get ready for the big game.
The Doctor and Dad household is no exception. But before we kicked off this year’s festivities, we thought it might be nice if we and the kids took a few moments during dinner to thoughtfully discuss what exactly this Super Bowl thing is all about.
We’re reviewing gifts this holiday season! We’ve already told you about the best and second best gifts for parents ever, and now we’ve got a one for the kids in your life. Last Night I Had a Laughmare, written by J.E. Laufer and illustrated by Jeff Yesh, is a whimsical, rhyming story about a fantastical land called “Gigglyville.”
Laufer was inspired to write the book when she woke up one morning laughing in her sleep. She called it a “laughmare” and created a dreamland that would leave kids laughing too.
Our family has visited Gigglyville many times now, and here’s what we each had to say about the book:
This week, the Doctor and the Dad are experiencing life on the road.
That’s right, we’re heading to the Fairview Branch of the Santa Monica Library for a Thursday evening book talk and signing, then we’re packing everything up and heading all the way across town for another book talk and signing at Flintridge Books in La Cañada on Saturday.
Two events. Thirty miles apart. In just three days.
It’s a real grind, people.
But you know what’s going to help us get through it? Knowing that we get to see your beautiful faces when we get there. (Yes, we’re talking about you, Gorgeous.)
That’s because we’re giving you an exclusive reading of the book people are calling “super fun,” “fascinating,” “an easy read” and “the perfect baby shower gift!”
For the record, the reading’s not by us – it’s by our kids. And even though they make up nearly all the words they say in it, we still think it’s pretty darn good.
By the way, if you have read our book but haven’t gotten around to writing a review of it yet, please do! We’d love to hear what you think about Think Like a Baby on the Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Goodreads websites – and we’re sure our potential customers would too.
