If there was ever a children’s book written about my life, then this one is it! The Worst Parents Ever is an absolutely delightful children’s e-book that will entertain, educate and inspire your whole family to be a little better and try a little harder. This book has fantastic illustrations and narration to back up the wonderful story line and message. You will truly fall in love with this adorable family.
Meet Hank and Jack, two very energetic and imaginative little boys. One morning they set out to make that day the FUNNEST day ever. They start out by creating an incredibly fun bed-jumping game that is quickly nixed by their exasperated mother. Not to be discouraged, the boys then make a fun cereal-launching game at the breakfast table. Surprisingly mom and dad didn’t like that one either. Why not take mom’s silverware and make the coolest racetrack ever created, they decide. No? Well, fine, then they’ll pretend their bath is actually a ship rolling across the biggest waves the ocean has ever seen! Two very exhausted parents finally have had enough and order the boys to bed and take away their toys as punishment.
The boys are very upset and tell their mom and dad that they are the “Worst Parents Ever”! They wish that they were the ones in charge because life would be a whole lot more fun if they were! That night, they dream that they have grown into adult-sized versions of themselves and mom and dad are the kids. They decide to spend their day doing what they do best: HAVING FUN! They bounce on the beds and break them, they play in the mud, and they fling food all over the kitchen and create havoc in the living room. At the end of the night all 4 of them are tired, dirty and hungry. But, wait! There is no food to eat and the kitchen is a disaster! When the boys send their parents in to the bathroom to take a bath they nearly overflow the sink! Don’t forget that they beds are broken and there is no place to sleep. The frustrated boys quickly change their minds and decide that they don’t like being the parents and wish things were back the way they were before.
When Hank and Jack wake up in the morning, they smell delicious pancakes and run into the kitchen to find grown-up mom and dad are back! The boys obediently eat their breakfast and offer to help mom clean up. They help fold the laundry and mom gives the boys car rides in the laundry basket! At bath time, the boys take their baths without making a mess of the bathroom. In fact, since mom and dad have had so much help that day there is even time to play a game as a family before bed! Hank and Jack happily realize that everyone is happier when they all do their part to keep the house tidy.
I would give this book a million thumbs up if I had them! The story is purely delightful. Any family can relate to the perspectives of the kids and the parents. It teaches a wonderful lesson about working together in an entertaining story. The illustrations are fabulous and interactive and truly add to the enjoyment of the book. The Worst Parents Ever is a book that every family should own and read over and over again. You will enjoy it every time!
