Is It Bedtime Yet?Random House
If it takes a village to raise a child.
These are the voices of that village.
The true stories in this book come from the hearts and mind of parents on the wild ride of caring for small children. There's the funny, the touching, the biological and the downright heart-breaking. There's glitter and gross stuff and great love and gastro and everything in between. It's no-holds-barred, raw and real - just what we need more of. Each one is written by a mother or father doing their best to muddle through. Some are experienced writers, others are putting pen to paper for the first time, but their varied and colourful experiences all ring true and will give other parents a sense of connection - and permission to give up on perfection and instead embrace joy.
Read. Laugh. Cry. Take heart and carry on!
