Book Review and Tour: How Do You Tuck In a Superhero? by Rachel Balducci


How Do You Tuck in a Superhero? And Other Delightful Mysteries of Raising Boys by Rachel Balducci
Publisher: Revell
Publish Date: April 1, 2010

My Review:
When I first received the offer to review this book I was intrigued.  I am a mom to two boys so this sounded like just the book for me.  And my first impression was right on the money.  How Do You Tuck in a Superhero is filled with quick little stories to read about what life is truly like in a houseful of boys.  Now Rachel Balducci has me beat - she actually has 5 sons (and I thought 2 was enough).  I think any  mom of boys can relate to the stories in this book.  I know they had me laughing out loud and sighing right along with the author.

It's a quick and easy read and very enjoyable - it's also a great pick-me-up for the end of a long day.  Just read one of the stories and you are bound to relate to it, and then either feel better or end up dying laughing.

I'm off to check out her blog now as it sounds like it is right up my alley as well.
About the Book:
When Rachel Balducci looks for material for her writing, she doesn't have to look far. Her subject matter can be found climbing through the window, hanging on to the edge of the roof, and always at the refrigerator. Here she chronicles the exuberant, awesome life of boys through conversations overheard, rules she's been forced to make, and the many episodes of boy behavior that continue to mystify mothers worldwide. From the care and feeding of her team, to travels out in public, to their wide-eyed adoration of Walker, Texas Ranger, this laugh-out-loud celebration joyfully explores the sweet and wild side of boyhood.

About the Author:
