I'm always up for a good laugh. I don't often get those laughs from books I read, but occasionally it can happen. When I was offered a review copy of this book, I took it in hopes that it would offer me a few good laughs, and it did. The book isn't fantastic, but it certainly isn't dull, and there are plenty of things in the book that all parents will be able to relate to.
Like the title says, this is a book of lists, as such, it is pretty concise and you could probably sit and read the whole thing from cover to cover in about an hour. As such, I view this book as more of a "bathroom reader" sort of book. By that I mean that it's a book that you can pick up, open to any page, read for a few minutes, get a few chuckles from, and then put down after completing a few short chapters.
In order to help you get a better grasp on what you'll expect to find in this book, I'll give you a partial list from one of the chapters entitled "Car Talk," which gives a list of things that kids like to argue about in the car when the trip is longer than three minutes:
1. Whether we're going fast or slow.
2. Where we're going.
3. Why we're going there.
4. When we're going to be there.
5. Who gets which car seat.
6. Who owns the strip of fabric between their car seats.
7. Who can kick the chair in front of them the hardest.
8. Why the windows won't go all the way down in the back seat.
9. Whether the windows should be up or down.
10. Why Daddy is so quiet.
If you found this list funny, then it's likely you'd enjoy most of this book. If you didn't find this list funny, then you should take a pass on this book. In my opinion, the book is a tad pricey for what it is. Also, I'm of the opinion that this book might make for a better gift than something one would purchase for themselves. It is what it is, and I liked it fine.
