Book Review: The Kid Dictionary By Eric Ruhalter

I recently received a copy of the new book The Kid Dictionary: Hilarious Words To Describe The Indescribable Things Kids Do by Eric Ruhalter to review.


Kids say and do the weirdest things. There are days when I am at a loss for words with some of the stunts my daughter pulls, and other days where I am trying my best not to laugh so I don't egg her on. She has no fear, and no filter either, oy. I think this is why I got the biggest kick out of The Kid Dictionary. There are so many words that just sum up my days - from "Rantonese" - the language consisting of the huffing, harrumphing, and muttering of angry child who just got punished (I swear, she sounds like Muttley from the old Hanna Barbara cartoon!) to "Impolert" - A child's indiscreet call of attention to a stranger's physical abnormality. Heck, sometimes it even applies to my DH - "Pastovers" - Uneaten food items that come home in the lunch box. LOL!

Seriously, if you need a book to give you the giggles right now, The Kid Dictionary is sure to bring a smile to any parent's face. This book is written for all the other "Momikazes" out there - you know, those of you who are also having your kids push you to the brink of insanity! ;)

The Kid Dictionary: Hilarious Words To Describe The Indescribable Things Kids Do by Eric Ruhalter is a softcover parenting humor book published by Source Books. It is 224 pages long. The suggested cover price is $9.99, and you can purchase it at your favorite local bookstore or online via sites like Amazon. It is also available as an e-book for the Kindle and other e-readers.

I received a copy of this book in order to read it and share my thoughts on it. All opinions are my own, and not that of the author(s) or publisher.
