Do you like making people jealous?
Of course you do!
What if I told you that for just a few dollars you could make both friends and strangers green with envy? You’re interested, right?
Imagine this: You’re at your neighborhood holiday party, and it’s time for the White Elephant gift exchange (or Yankee Swap, or whatever it’s called in your region). You are geared up to fight the guy up the street for the bottle of booze that’s in the pile, but when the gifts are opened, this hilarious book is one of the options.
The Big Book of Parenting Tweets
You aren’t surprised, since YOU brought the book, and when the dust settles, you’re happily sipping your boozy prize while everyone else is wishing they had thought to bring a gift as popular as The Big Book of Parenting Tweets, and/or wishing they had won it. Since you’re in a sharing mood, you share the good news that for the low cost of $4.99 that hilarity can be on your neighbors’ Kindles in the blink of an eye.
Or, picture this: You’re in the waiting room at the dentist or on an airplane heading to a loved one’s for the holidays. You’ve cracked open The Big Book of Parenting Tweets, and are trying unsuccessfully to stifle your laughter. You can feel the eyes of the people around you trying to get a look at the title, because nothing generates strangers’ interest like a laugh-out-loud book.
Be careful with this, though. Laughing out loud can quickly turn into hysterics which may cause the man sitting next to you to become genuinely concerned as ask if you’re okay. Not that this has ever happened to me multiple times.
The Big Book of Parenting Tweets is a collection of over 300 jokes, real kid conversations, and one-liners from more than 30 of the funniest Twitter accounts who also happen to be parents. Kate Hall, from Hall of Tweets teamed up with Norine Dworkin-McDaniel & Jessica Ziegler, the ladies behind Science of Parenthood, to create the perfect gift for baby showers, stocking stuffers, and really anytime you want to tell someone, “Hey, I like you. Here is a big ol’ book of fun and laughs.” It’s easy to read, it’s hilarious for anyone who has children, and you can give it to your grandmother because it’s rated PGish.
But listen, don’t take it from me, ridiculously good looking male models are loving this book.
And those crazy kids from Twilight are digging it, too.
Even my kids love it (but do not buy it for children!).
Here are some examples of what you’ll find in this book.
Fun Fact: The average group of 4yos can take up to 7 years to break open a pinata.
Kids are like sponges. They smell bad.
Just read that the average cost of raising a child is $250K and that’s just Legos.
I wish bottles of ibuprofen came with a little prize inside, like maybe a babysitter.
Pretty sure my son was disappointed in the 30% off coupon to Bed, Bath & Beyond the Tooth Fairy left him last night.
This review says it best,
“You don’t have to understand Twitter to enjoy this book. It’s not about hashtags or acronym lingo, it’s about short bites of funny. Remember the “Quotable Quotes” and “All In A Day’s Work” columns in Reader’s Digest? It’s like that: pithy, timely, and completely relevant to your life.”
– Dr. LN
