SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
A longtime former writer for the Chicago Sun-Times and now a columnist for the Chicago Tribune, Jennifer Grant is no stranger to the common reader. MOMumental is a foray into the enormously amusing, creative, and taxing process of raising a family and a starkly honest memoir that mothers everywhere can identify with. With narrative that is chock-full of humorous, poignant stories drawn from her everyday adventures as a mother and wife, Grant presents an entertaining and inspirational book that will give readers uncommon insights about being an intentional parent.
Moms everywhere know how tough it is to raise kids. If you're not a mom yet, it might seem like an easy enough thing to manage.
In MOMumental, Jennifer Grant shares anecdotes of her life as a mom. She tells readers about her struggle to perfect her parenting style and raise well-adjusted kids.
Jennifer's writing style is very conversational. It's like listening to your aunt's stories during afternoon tea. Her anecdotes are not only funny, they're also poignant. Every now and then, she quotes from the Bible to illustrate a point. It's not distracting, though, even if you're not a Christian.
