“This second WTKS edition delivers all new humorous conversations that I have with my son. Topics include: first crushes, school lunches, word confusion (Concord vs. conquered), clones, swearing while driving, the pros and cons of television, and the kid’s interpretation of holidays. With plenty to make you laugh, and a bit to make you cry, this download has something for all those who love kids.” (description from Goodreads)
This is the second What the Kid Says collection from Jessica Park and it was just as great of a read as the first one.
At the expense of sounding like I’m copying my review of the first collection, What the Kid Says was a hilarious and touching read from beginning to end. Park is able to take her everyday conversations with her son, and bring a smile to the fan of readers.
I was able to fly through this little book in a sitting and even in its brevity, it’ll stay with me for some time. Through the humor, there are moments of hope for a child’s future, fear of missing his/her childhood, and many more moments that parents tend to cherish. I think it’s that dual play on emotions that turn this book into such a great read. You might even end up wanting a mom like Park!

About the Author:
Jessica Park is the author of the young adult novels FLAT-OUT LOVE and RELATIVELY FAMOUS; five Gourmet Girl mysteries (written as Jessica Conant-Park); and the e-shorts FACEBOOKING RICK SPRINGFIELD and WHAT THE KID SAYS (Parts 1 & 2).
Jessica grew up in the Boston area and attended Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. After spending four years in the frigid north, including suffering through one memorable Halloween blizzard, Jessica hightailed it back to the east coast. She now lives in (relatively balmy) New Hampshire with her husband, son, bananas dog named Fritzy, and two selfish cats. When not writing, Jessica indulges her healthy addictions to Facebook, Rick Springfield, and super-sweet coffee beverages.
