Bender, Mike and Doug Chernack Everything is Awkward. PICTURE BOOK. Crown Books for Young Readers, 2016. $14.99. Content: G
This is a fun book that uses real photos to illustrate the awkward moments that can happen in life--falling in the toilet, strange family vacation moments, or face-planting off the playground slide. Its message to kids is that, "Hey! Life is less than perfect sometimes and that is okay!" and that is a message that a lot of kids need to hear. I really enjoyed this book. The photos are often laugh-out-loud hilarious and the message is really important. I think this is a great way to get kids talking about real life and learning to not be embarrassed about every little thing that happens. Kids of all ages will love it.
