Best Parenting Book

My childhood love for The Family Circus was renewed when I became a parent.  It is always the first comic strip I read in the Sunday paper.  If you are feeling exasperated as the parent of little kids it will validate those feelings then remind you of their sweet innocence and before you know it you’ll be handing out hugs again!  Laughter really is the best way to break through tension.

Volume one includes the first two years from the 1960’s of The Family Circus plus some background info on Bil Keane (who passed away in 2011).  His son Jeff now writes, inks, and colors The Family Circus.

Here’s a link to volume two.
