The Christopher Chronicles (Review & Giveaway- 2 winners!).



"My son is the gift that keeps on giving. I may not always know where he's coming from but he teaches me something new and amuses me every day.  And that my friends, is why I wrote this book."
                                      -from the forward in The Christopher Chronicles:  Age 5


"This book is for every adult who has ever been left speechless by a child and had to hold back their laughter." ~Antoinette Dickson
                                    -from back cover of the book

Many of you know Kenya from "Here's the Thing." She's a blogger, an author, and my bloggy friend. Some of her posts are downright hilarious, so it just naturally falls into place that her book, The Christopher Chronicles is funny too. Written to document the humorous things her son has said during the course of being 5, it's also a book that every parent is going to laugh at, or agree with when they're thinking of their own children.

The cover is an awesome illustration of her son, but don't let that fool you, it's written for the grown ups. Full of excerpts, quips, and laugh-out-loud moments, this book is great to curl up with and read when you want to relax and have a good chuckle (or ten). It's also a fun gift idea, and a most excellent addition to any bookshelf.

This book is recommended for:

  • Mothers
  • Fathers
  • Baby Showers
  • Pastors
  • Grandparents
  • Sunday/school teachers
  • Members of the Military 
  • Anyone who needs a bright spot in their day - just because
