The Christopher Chronicles: Age 5 - Book Review



"I am definitely too busy to take a nap."
                                      -from The Christopher Chronicles:  Age 5

If you are a blogger you may have already heard of Kenya G. Johnson from the blog "Here's the Thing..." Her posts are great, and oftentimes hilarious.  Her stories about her workouts with her husband had me in stitches, and now every time someone says, "Here's the thing..." I think of her blog and laugh (in a good way).  :)

Johnson is also an author of the newly published book, her first, The Christopher Chronicles: Age 5.  Since I enjoy reading her blog so much, I had to go purchase the book.  It did not disappoint.  Anyone who has had a child in their lives will be able to relate to this one.  From the first page to the last, The Christopher Chronicles offers a glimpse into the curious and hilarious mind of a happy, vivacious 5-yr. old.  Lighthearted and easy to read, it is peppered with more than a modicum of wit, and I guarantee you're going to chuckle or even laugh out loud (more than once).

The Christopher Chronicles would be the perfect addition for any home library, and priced at just $10.99 on Amazon, it also makes a great gift idea (with the holidays fast approaching, you're going to want to keep this one in mind). 

Supporting a fellow blogger whose work you enjoy is always fun, supporting one who is a great author too, is even better. 

You can follow Johnson on her website found here, her blog, Facebook, Twitter, G+ and/or Pinterest.

  2. Yay for you, Kenya!!! I'd like to add that this would also make a great gift to tuck into a baby shower gift bag. Something fresh and fun for mamas who need a moment to laugh! :)

    1. Eh, they're fun at any age. ;)

      Grandkids do sound splenderific though (and I'm looking forward to our first in April).

      This really is a fun book. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. What a cute book! My youngest will be 9 soon, so I bet she would be insulted if I gave her this book to read lol. I'll have to keep it in mind for nieces and nephews though!

    1. It's more for the adults than the kiddos, I think...a book that reflects on some of the many funny things that children say. :)

    1. So many people say they want to write a book, but they never do it. You did it, published, are in the promoting stage, and your book is really good. How cool is that? Totally worth sharing. :)

      Happy weekend.

  10. Oh, this was so nice of you to promote Ms. KGJ with a surprise book review! The Chrstopher Chronicles is most definitely a good readable laugh. I just adore that child even w/o having the pleasure of meeting him in person. Like you said it's a great gift for all ages.
