Raising Parents

My daughter just celebrated her first birthday – a perfect time to introduce you to a new picture book by Ueberreuter Verlag:

Eltern richtig erziehen

RAISING PARENTS by Katharina Grossmann-Hensel

Everyone knows that parents aren’t perfect! So when a child first learns to talk, it’s time to pass on some kid rules. Whether it’s choosing what to wear or controlling phone etiquette, it is always important to keep parents in tow. The feisty little heroine in Katharina Grossmann- Hensel’s humorous and witty new picture book shares all of the steps required for effective Parent-Raising. In the end, she decides not be too demanding, even to give her parents a hug and kiss. And when a tiny sibling is born, the fun will begin all over again! Zany episodes from „normal“ family life enhanced by wacky illustrations. The perfect gift for stressed-out parents, too!
