The Lunch Box Mom Book Club Edition

If you like to read, think, and talk about ideas, you won't be sorry you picked a blog for your next book.

For the first time, I've grouped the most popular Lunch Box Mom posts into a format perfect for book clubs. These timely posts touch on some of the most important parenting issues of the last year. Read them in the order of the Table of Contents below, or skip around to suit your mood. The 39 columns are about as long as a 250 page book.  If you read the comments associated with the posts or add some of your own, you'll be stepping into the interesting dialogue that makes a blog part of the unique discourse of our time.

"Lunch Box Mom should be on every parent’s weekly reading list. Clearly and entertainingly written, thoroughly researched, and unfailingly interesting, Sarah’s blog covers timely topics and provides useful tips, field-tested by her two young daughters. Whether she’s writing about a recall of a pediatric medicine or how to explain urban road kill to your children, Sarah’s narrative skill with just the right touch of humor makes Lunch Box Mom a delightful and practical excursion into parenthood."

"I love the wide range of topics – from trends in baby carriages to the perils of air travel with a two-year-old, from a child’s endless questions to the more profound, such as the lovely and touching post on the death of a beloved grandmother. But what I appreciate most is the writer’s deft touch and wonderful sense of humor. It’s a real gift to be able to make people laugh out loud, especially first thing in the morning. More please."

"I love seeing what's in the Lunch Box, especially the one packed by Lunch Box Mom! It's not a liverwurst on rye, but it's pretty darn good."

"Hey, it's not War and Peace, but you've already read that, right?"
