A nice book

This is a lovely collection of short folktales all tied together by the book's story teller, the grandmother.
Clever

This is the retelling of a classic old Yiddish folk tale about a man who goes to his rabbi for advice on how to help his family's problem of their too small and crowed home. The rabbi's solution makes for an entertaining story and a lesson learned.
So helpful!

This is a great resource for any nursing mother. Tons of information, answers so many questions and is like a supportive pep talk in printed form. It helped me a lot and I highly recommend it.

AFP is definately funny, but also a little painful when the photos are perhaps too familiar. I found that while the author's captions were sometimes annoying, they could be helpful for directing your attention to something you have otherwise missed in an image. I especially enjoyed the discriptions people wrote for their own photos or the awkward stories they told.

As someone who has written and received letters like the ones in this book, I found it both very funny and a little heartbreaking. Everytime I turned a page, especially in the the section titled, "Get Me Outta Here!!!" I half expected to see a letter I wrote to my parents my first time at sleep away camp, many many decades ago. (Why did you send me here? What did I do to deserve this? Why why why!?)
Although sometimes it was hard to make out the kids handwriting, it added so much to see the original letters, spelling mistakes, illustrations, underlining etc.
