Product Description

A is for AppleB is for BearC is for Cat . . . Z is for zzzzzz. This is 2014, and your ABC book, no matter how charming, just doesn’t reflect the busy lives of today's toddlers. Far more useful, then, to learn that A is for AllergyB is for Babyccino, and C is for Controlled Crying.

All the pain and joy of modern parenting is packed into this beautifully designed, very funny little book. Perfect for new parents, old parents, and anyone who has recently spoken to a childrearing consultant, Q is for Quinoa is the ideal impulse buy and an unbeatable stocking stuffer. From Active Birthing to Zumba, Q is for Quinoa is a refreshingly honest read for sleep-deprived parents everywhere.

Praise for Q is for Quinoa:

“From active birthing to Zumba, [Q is for Quinoa] brings the vocabulary of modern parenting right up to date.” —Sunday Telegraph

“An alphabet with good jokes for grownups.” —Jennifer Saunders
