A Review of: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes by Annie Kubler
I’m surprised to find so many positive reviews for this book. Not only did I not find this book well-written or informative, but downright offensive. I have just one question for the author: WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?
For many years I have nursed my baby and fed him mushed peas carrots and whatnot and for many years he has thanked me in several different ways, i.e. saying “thanks” or just saying “hey, thanks” or what have you. But when I gave this book to my precious little baby he did NOT thank me at all. Instead, do you know what he said to me? He said “don’t you think I’m a little too old for this?” And I said to him, “Is 12 years old too old?” And he then said “Yes.”
Can you BELIEVE that!? It makes me SICK to think that this book is not smart enough for my little bouncy baby. I am feeling so sick also because I have been eating nothing but Truvia sweetener for the passed couple of weeks. I’m on the “Truvia diet”. It seems to be working pretty well so far but I don’t know, I find myself getting irritated and snapping at the slightest little things.
Like the other day, I was in this tiny life-raft (don’t ask me how I ended up in that situation) and this guy who was sitting across from me says to me “oh hey, do you think we’ll ever see out families again?” I mean, really this guy was such a jerk. How could he ask me such a thing? I said to him “First of all, I do NOT like the way you look. Second, who are you and how did I end up in this life-raft?”
I was SOO mad. But you know what? We all live and learn and sometimes we realize that eating artificial sweetener as a meal-replacement maybe isn’t the best thing for us.
You see? This is the kind of stuff that should have been in this book. Life lessons. Not some over-simplified gobbledygook about identifying your body parts. Who needs it? I say the author should have written a book about a guy who loses his family in a car accident and then spends the entire book trying to devise a way to travel back in time in order to prevent the tragedy from ever occurring while also trying not to alter the future too much as per the advice of a brainiac professor. Now THAT would be a book. And it would teach our children about loss and that no matter what you should never accept loss and instead you should grasp desperately at an impossible and fantastic solution to bring back your dead loved ones. It will also teach them about character development and time travel.
Hopefully one day the author of this book will find a way to travel back in time and keep this book from ever having been published. zero stars.
