Days of Whine and Noses Review by Dawn King

Lisa Espinoza Johnson
Jossey-Bass, an imprint of Wiley

I decided to catch up on my product reviews while my children were in co-op classes for the day. As I sat in the lobby at the church, I pulled out Days of Whine and Noses. Not long after beginning the first chapter, I started to snicker, then a chuckle, then finally I was laughing out loud. You know rolling on the floor hysteria that makes you worry you will have an accident. As my friends stared at me in amazement, I wiped the tears from my eyes and handed the book to the one seated closest to me. It was the same scenario: snicker, chuckle, and then uncontrollably laughing out loud.

Days of Whine and Noses contains thirty short chapters on various topics familiar to moms with small children. Each chapter also has a surprising encouragement at the end. What does breastfeeding have in common with Mother Theresa? Read the book to find out! The book is hysterically funny because it describes all those things in our mothering experience that have happened to us, but are afraid to admit.

If you need a quick laugh, run out and buy this book today!!
