Things I've Said to My Children by Nathan Ripperger

This book is a fun and delightfully illustrated read highlighting the ridiculous nature of the advice parents sometimes have to dole out to their little ones. Although I am not a parent myself, having worked with children for multiple years I can easily relate to the humor of having to give kids such sage advice as "Don't lick my arm!" and "Stop eating cake out of the garbage." Whether you have children, know children, or were once a child yourself, this book will amuse and bemuse you.

Blogging for Books provided this book to me for free in exchange for an honest review.

Dad Is Fat by Jim Gaffigan

This book was filled with the humor I have come to expect from Jim Gaffigan's stand up routines; good, clean stories with a tip of the hat to the satiric experience of living everyday life. This book particularly centered around the trials and triumphs of parenthood. While I don't think the book ever made me laugh out loud, I did enjoy the humorous accounts of Gaffigan's struggles in being a father. I am certain this book would be more amusing to people with children of their own, though it makes for a light and pleasant read for the unencumbered as well.
