If Your Kid Eats This Book… (Review & Giveaway)

Hachette Book Group has kept me reading some great reads this year and I love being able to share them with you. This book is definitely a book to put in stockings or give them to New, Old, First Time, etc Moms!

If Your Kid Eats This Book, Everything Will Be Okay.

kideatthis ABOUT THE BOOK:

As an Emergency Room pediatrician, Dr. Lara Zibners has seen it all. She’s cared for a portion of the 25 million children in the U.S. who are taken to the ER each year-and she knows that more than 50% of these visits may be unnecessary. IF YOUR KID EATS THIS BOOK, EVERYTHING WILL STILL BE OKAY shows parents when they may need to take action, and when they might be able to just go back to bed and call their doctor in the morning. With sections such as “In the Diaper” and “His Noggin and the Nervous System,” Dr. Zibners covers every part of the body and offers sound advice (for example, did you know that oil is the best remedy for dissolving superglue between body parts?), all while maintaining a lively and often hilarious tone. To the question, “What if she chokes on her vomit?” Zibners answers, “A healthy child will not choke on her own vomit, unless she is drunk or high on Grandma’s sleeping pills.”

WHAT I THOUGHT:

When you first open the book you are greeted with a run little True or False type quiz. Automatically you get that the book is going to be quite witty. It’s 306+/- pages of informative , more tongue in cheek style writing; from bringing baby home to when it’s time to have an actual visit to the emergency room. When you the hit actual end of this book the author brings you a few, brilliant reminders, like – “Parental Instinct Is Not A Myth”. I loved this book and enjoyed reading it. I loved having a spin on the information instead of just the run of the mill information read out like a text book!
