I laughed as Salditt reminds us of the importance of toilet paper and how NOT having toilet paper is a very bad thing! I'm not sure if I cried because of memories of some horrible roommates, or at the thought of my "baby" out on his own.
The illustrations are charming and this little gem of a book is filled with terrific checklists for you and the young adult that is making the big move.
I can't wait to see what Salditt tackles next.
We had a fun time conversing about this book as they read it too, it is fun and comical to read and we laughed a lot too, not boring at all and many times we said "Hey that is a really clever idea or way to solve that problem."
Our 2 sons and 3 daughters are now 18-26 and all living independently on their own and it gave them confidence and us peace of mind having them read this before leaving our nest.
The book contains all sorts of lists and ideas for them to use, such as the items to stock up on (toilet paper) that will make life easier when they are on their on.
Their are many tips in this book from looking for a place to rent, how to cook and how to select a roommate.
Lots of smiles.
This is a great book of lists and ideas for both movers and parents of movers to use to stock up on large and small items that will make life just so much easier on your own! There are even tips on how to interview a house-mate, and a little cooking, and remembering to ask the landlord where the laundry facilities are when you're looking at a new place.
It's a quick read, and a quick eye-opener, and a cute gift.
