The KidDictionary: A Book of Words Parents Need But Don't Have

The KidDictionary: A Book of Words Parents Need But Don't Have. It is a glossary of terms I coined upon realizing that the English language lacks a lot of words that one needs to describe the many and varied complexities of living in the company of children.


WISHJACK (WISH-jahk) v.: To maliciously blow out the candles on another child's birthday cake.

SNOOT (SNEWT) v.: To suck in rather than blow out when blowing your nose.

ORTHODONTREPRENEUR (orth-O-dahn-truh-prenn-orr) n. : A child interested in knocking all of his own teeth out in the interest of a hefty payday from the tooth fairy.

Each KidDefinition in The KidDictionary is accompanied by a quaint and humorous black and white photograph. The KidDictionary's target audience includes anyone who has kids, anyone who knows kids, anyone who knows someone who has kids, or anyone who ever was a kid. (A fairly sizable demographic.) I would love it if you could review my book. If you would like me to send you a review copy, please just let me know where to send. I am blogging again prolifically after a hiatus while putting this book together. if you're interested perhaps you'd like to run some of my new tales if you find them agreeable.
