This is purportedly a children's book but some of the themes would only be understood by an adult. It basically discusses the complexities of mother/daughter relationships, nostalgia for earlier and simpler stages of childhood, resolving arguments, and sibling rivalry. There are also some humorous episodes included along the way. I am curious whether my kids would like this book or not but there are certain parts of it that I am a little hesitant to read to them for fear of giving them bad ideas (the joys of squeezing out all the toothpaste from the tube, threatening to run away from home, etc).
