BOOK REVIEW: Stop Dressing Your 6 Year Old Like a Skank!

Stop Dressing Your Six-Year-Old Like a Skank: And Other Words of Delicate Southern Wisdom

Here's what www.amazon.com says:

Celia Rivenbark's essays about life in today's South are like caramel popcorn---sweet, salty, and utterly irresistible

Celia Rivenbark is a master at summing up the South in all its glorious excesses and contradictions. In this collection of screamingly funny essays, you'll discover:

* How to get your kid into a character breakfast at Disneyworld (or run the risk of eating chicken out of a bucket with Sneezy)

* Secrets of Celebrity Moms (don't hate them because they're beautiful when there are so many other reasons to hate them)

* EBay addiction and why "It ain't worth having if it ain't on eBay" (Whoa! Is that Willie Nelson's face in your grits?)

* Why today's children's clothes make six-year-olds look like Vegas showgirls with an abundance of anger issues

* And so much more!

Rivenbark is an intrepid explorer and acid commentator on the land south of the Mason-Dixon line.    
My thoughts:
Great book!! I didn't want to put it down! Her humor & grace in all situations are hilarious!! Can't wait to read other books she's written!!
