    When I first read this book as a child, I thought at the time it was a hilarious, fun book with lots of how not to information in it It was one of the books I returned to repeatedly because of how much I enjoyed it.I hadn t seen this book in probably 25 years when it crossed my path again today I picked it up and began turning pages out of nostalgia and got sucked into reading the entire book all over again I didn t expect it, but the book is even funnier now that I m an adult with kids of my ow [...]

    After reading a review from , I ordered this book from the local library It s very funny and entertaining, but many of the ideas that were found humorous and acceptable in 1977, would not be so today An example might be of sliding your cat down the railing or making fun of classmates and neighbors The author s illustrations, especially among the first are so accurate such as smashing your potatoes down and putting the mashed peas on top without eating it , that it made me chuckle to remember doi [...]

    Don t be thrown by the title This book was written for adults I first read this book in 1979, soon after it was published Last week, Delia Ephron spoke in Cleveland about her writing and collaboration at a book festival She was excellent I decided to reread the book and discovered I had two copies I m glad I did She nailed it Anyone who has a child, knows a child, or was a child can relate to this very funny book It begins with eating Peas Mash and flatten into thin sheets on plate Press the bac [...]

    While the illustrations are to be desired, my stomach hurt so bad after reading this that I have to recommend it It s so true it s creepy.

  5. Robyn

    My parents kept this book on the shelf, I discovered it when I was in high school I also estimated on the date I read it, since I know I read it than once I even shared it with one of my teachers in high school, who read the book out loud to the class for some comic relief from our serious studies.I first thought, because of the title, that it was actually a how to manual, literally about eating To my surprise, it s actually about many typical situations that arise during childhood, it describe [...]

    This book took me back to my childhood Delia Ephron sister of Nora Ephron is spot on The book is a collections of anecdotes from childhood and teaches the reader how a child should or in reality does behave It is so true it is uncanny.My favourite sections include Being sent to your room and Caring for Pets.

  7. Lisa

    I have an original edition from 1978 and have shared it with my 3 children 23,20,16 as soon as they reached an appropriate age I remember using a passage for a college speech class as well This is one of my all time favorites and I reach for it it every now and then when I need a quick chuckle.

  8. Phyllis

    This book got me through a hospital stay in 4th grade I can t say enough good things about it because of that I read it and re read it between diagnostic tests, IVs, GI intubations, and after surgery It was funny without being too gross I see it s been made into a musical Shows how behind the times I am Anyway, thanks to Ephron and Koren for making this book.

  9. Mrsgaskell

    This little book was a fun and nostalgic read that brought smiles to my face and made me chuckle than once I reconnected with the child from my past who used to pour ketchup into her mashed potatoes and stir until they turned pink This was a lovely little day brightener from a fellow bookcrosser.

  10. Shazza Maddog

    I have my very own copy of this book I had been looking for it for literally decades, and I found a copy, and snatched it up and ran off laughing gleefully This is what you read when you have siblings And you point and laugh, because you recognize yourself Or your sibling Absolutely Perfectly.

  11. Jeni

    This book should have been entitled How to be an Obnoxious Child Delia Ehpron is a very good observer, but I didn t think it was particularly humorous All of the stories describe bad behaviors This might make a good book for new parents so they won t be shocked at some of the current children behaviors.

  12. Claire

    I love this book Growing up, my parents owned this and I used to read it as a kid and crack up So I just got it for my birthday and am reading it again for the first time in at least 15 years As an adult, I think the book is even better I love the illustrations.

  13. Kyla

    Not a kids book, despite appearances, but a straight into the head of kids books All the little things like making crank phone calls and artfully bugging your sister are here, just as you remember them Diverting.

  14. Monica

    I read this book as a young girl and I ve loved it ever since It is hilarious, especially if you love dry humor

  15. Robin

    Re reading this one now as an adult I realize that I liked it when I was a child Still fun to read again, though

  16. Beverly

    I didn t think it was all that funny just a few places But I recognized many of the situations in my own families.

  17. Phyllis

    this is a cute book written in the late 1970 s Told from a child s perspective on how to act like a child form eating, riding in a car, staying up late to having a birthday party.
