'The Fireside Grown-Up Guide to the Mom' by Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris is a parody series with vintage illustrations. It's not bad for what it is.
The mom has two very important jobs, according to the book: to look after her children and to do everything else well. This book of large type and easy to read information will give hints and tips at excelling at this job. I learned about children moving laundry baskets and how the mom sounds like her own mother. I learned how the mom made a nice cork doll out of all the Pinot Grigio bottles in the house.
You get the picture. The vintage drawings were fun to see. The humor worked sometimes for me and sometimes it fell flat. I feel like sometimes the pictures were mismatched a bit with the captions. But your mileage may vary, and if you need a humorous book for the mom in your life, this might be something she'd like.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Touchstone and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
