I originally came to the author's blog for entertainment and commiseration with other parents concerning the frustrations of raising a toddler. However, when my 2 1/2 year old son saw me looking at the page, much to my surprise he was captivated. He was dying to know why all these poor babies were crying. We ended up having wonderful conversations about empathy, safety, better ways to express our feelings to get what we want, and what things might be worth crying about. For nearly 6 months my son asked me to see the "crying baby page," so I knew once the book come out we would have to have it. For the last two weeks this has been our bedtime book. We talk about why the mommies and daddies have to keep the baby out of the oven and the dishwasher to keep him safe even if it means he might get upset. We talk about how someone should tell the boy that a fly can't hurt him so he wouldn't be upset. We talk about how people get cranky when they are hungry, or how the little girl should ask for another peach instead I'd crying that she ate up the first one. We talk about how we should never hurt the dog (or eat his tail). Sometimes I say, "Well, I would cry too if that happened to me," or "I think I would just ask for what I wanted instead of crying." Sometimes I try to get him to see another person's point of view by saying, "I think that Daddy might be sad that his baby doesn't want a picture taken with him." Even though as a frustrated parent I find the book very funny, I'm careful to never laugh or trivialize the babies' feelings in front of my son as he takes their feelings very seriously. For child who is just learning about feelings, empathy, and expressing himself verbally this series has unexpectedly turned out to be an invaluable teaching tool.

I love the Tumblr, I love the Twitter feed. The only advantage they have over this book is that the book, unfortunately, ends. This book is not all entertaining pictures, either. There are short essays throughout that show Greg Pembroke has real sensitivity, depth and talent. I hope for not only sequels to this book, but perhaps more writing as well. Fabulous!

Love the blog, love the book - what more can I say? Well, I will say it anyways...

The book is great since it has intros to each chapter that are laugh-out-loud funny, as well as lists of why the author himself would like to have a meltdown. Some of the pics repeat from the tumblr, but most appear new and are just a riot.

Perfect gift for baby showers, new parents, or parents of toddlers going through a meltdown phase that could use a good laugh. (The book is also a great way for child-free people to hilariously remind themselves why they might not yet be ready for a little bundle of joy...)

Sometimes children get tired. Very tired. Generally speaking, several times a day. And when they do — since they aren’t that good at the whole speaking-English thing — they will probably cry. That’s pretty consistent throughout all child-dom. But the specific triggers for crying vary wildly from child-to-child, and even day-to-day.
If you’re curious about either (A) why children cry, or (B) if your child is the only one who cries over random things in life, then Reasons My Kid Is Crying is the book for you. Reasons my Son is Crying, gathers and documents photos and brief descriptions of the Random Crying Phenomenon worldwide. For instance, “He wanted me to put the crust back onto the toast,” or “His aunt wouldn’t let him play with this ax,” or the understandable, “We gathered around and yelled “Happy Birthday.’”
As it turns out, communicating in a new language, especially when you’re tired, can bring anyone to tears. If you know someone with toddler or tow, and a sense of humor, then you may want to help them avoid a few tears with their own copy.

Love this book! Who hasn't had a child cry for no reason. And you can't make them stop. Well, here are the reasons and they are as off the wall as your child's reasons and that's why we all have to laugh about it instead of getting frustrated. Plus, you too can take a picture under similar circumstances and add it to the website. Share the love/frustration!!!

In this hilarious book, the author shares pictures and quotes from parents capturing their own children having epic meltdowns over the most bizarre reasons.

As a parent, there is no way to deny that all of my kids have had a memorable moment or two that left me shaking my head in wonder - why is my child crying? Why is he so hysterical that his shoe is untied? Why did he just throw himself onto the floor because I used the red cup for his juice and not the yellow? And one of the best - he's crying because I wouldn't let him drink water out of the toilet!
All of the pictures and subtitles in the book are just that - moments our toddlers have had either do to their own reasoning or just common sense that these little babies haven't acquired yet.

The author, Greg Penbroke, originally started this trend when he started to share his own kid's breakdowns on his tumblr/blog. He then started to include pictures of other children from around the world when their parents started sharing pictures that they have captured as well. It has since become a well-known trend among families and friends to share these adorable yet questioning things that causes these little ones to have the most bizarre reactions.

Definitely a laugh-out-loud book to share with other family members over and over again.

I received a paperback from "Blogging for Books" for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.
