It's Your Kid, Not a Gerbil by Dr. Kevin Leman

From the author of The Birth Order Book, one that I read and learned much from years ago, comes a new book about getting your family off of the activity wheel- It's Your Kid, Not a Gerbil

I chose this one to review because, honestly, I enjoyed the cute, catchy title and because I really enjoyed The Birth Order Book when I read it years ago.  I also realize that, despite our efforts to the contrary, we have recently increased our activity level quite a bit.  I know some of that is to be expected as the kids grow, but it is something I always want to be conscious of for our family.

I was inspired and encouraged by much of what I read.  There's lots of good, practical information here.  Families who desire a change can get some good advice and encouragement. I did think much of the information was general parenting information; and, while it was good, it was not exactly what I was looking for in this book.  I wasn't really looking for another parenting book; although I do agree with most of Dr. Leman's parenting advice.  I sort of felt like that part was "preaching to the choir."  I was really looking something a little different in this book.  But, I would still strongly recommend it and endorse it as a good read.

I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale for review purposes.  All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
