Casey and Kyle: I'm Saving Up For a Big Brother!!! by Will Robertson

Casey and Kyle: I'm Saving Up For a Big Brother!!! by Will Robertson
ISBN: 978-1461023555
Published May 8, 2011
Paperback, 96 pages

This was an absolutely fun book to read! The Casey and Kyle Collection of comic strips deals with parenting, family life and kid antics that had me smiling, giggling or outright laughing as I read cartoon anecdotes of things that I can relate to as a parent and a mom.

The illustrations are adorable and Robertson gets the facial expressions right-on with a few strokes of his pen. Not only that, but he understands kids, especially boys, which isn't surprising since he has two of his own. I loved the strip named Surround Sound, and the ones that involved the mom and mealtimes. Lima beans, anyone?

I read this book mainly in bed just before falling asleep and it always made me laugh at what I knew were frustrating parenting moments but that Robertson succeeded in showing were universal situations. It made me happy I had kids. It made me see things through the eyes of my kids. It's not easy being a kid and feeling misunderstood because kid logic is so different from parental logic. And it made me think, “Okay, lighten up. All moms have meltdowns...”

If you have young kids, or grandkids, this is the perfect book for you and your spouse. If you don't have kids, get it for the young couple who look like they could use a break. They will thank you.

Note: This book is rated C = clean read.
I will count this book toward the following challenges: A - Z book Challenge
