The Sweet Potato Queens’ Guide to Raising Children for Fun & Profit By Jill Conner Browne


The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit is a hilarious (though not scientifically tested) wink at the time-honored mysteries of parenting, because anybody who has ever had a kid or has ever known one knows that the experience is neither fun nor profitable -- so you might as well laugh!

As each generation begins its hopeful, happy, and, yes, sometimes harrowing journey as Parent and Child, together they spawn a new body of "knowledge," the nuances of which will elude the Experts every time. Here are stories of the things we do for Mother Love -- or, the most incredibly full-time volunteer job ever -- and tips guaranteed not to be found in any other parenting guide.

·         How to talk to a pregnant woman
·         How the diamonds on delivery policy can speed up the labor nature intended
·         Why a good mother is always adept at subterfuge
·         The list of things you wouldn't think you would have to tell kids not to do
·         Why mothers of sons can never retire
·         Why, for parents, it's just a short drive to the poorhouse

The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit will have everyone who's ever been a parent -- or has ever thought of becoming one -- or has ever been a child -- or is still one -- giggling and grinning (no small feat) through those childbearing years...and beyond.

Review by Rose Thornton:

Anyone who is familiar with Jill Conner Browne’s series of Sweet Potato Queen books has likely already read this one because her work is addictive and if you read one, you will want to read them all! Browne is the female Dave Barry of written humor based on real-life. This is another delightful book of hers. If you have yet to read of the Sweet Potato Queens, you are in for a special treat. This book, like the others, is easy to read, well-organized, includes many helpful tips and recipes, and above all is hilarious! I highly recommend it.

Thanks for visiting, Rose, Julie, Donna, & Rochelle
