Book Description

1 April 2010 Spire Books
When Rachel Balducci looks for material for her writing, she doesn't have to look far. Her subject matter can be found climbing through the window, hanging on to the edge of the roof, and always at the refrigerator. Here she chronicles the exuberant, awesome life of boys through conversations overheard, rules she's been forced to make, and the many episodes of boy behavior that continue to mystify mothers worldwide. From the care and feeding of her team, to travels out in public, to their wide-eyed adoration of Walker, Texas Ranger, this laugh-out-loud celebration joyfully explores the sweet and wild side of boyhood.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Well Written But This is not a "How To" Book 31 Mar 2010
By Momma C - Published on Amazon.com
I was really excited to receive this book as we have two little superheros in our home. Always trying to understand a little better the male mind, I couldn't wait to dive in.

How Do You Tuck In a Superhero?: And Other Delightful Mysteries of Raising Boys is a collect of stories written by a mom of five boys. Rachel Balducci is a delightful writer and has an amazing way with words. The book contains approx. 100 mini-stories of life around the Balducci home. She proves that with boys there is never a dull moment.

Even though the title is "How Do You...", this is NOT a parenting book. This is key. In reality, this book is just stories of life with boys. The crazy, unthinkable, scary things that boys do and say. This book is set up more like a gift or coffee-table book.

Momma C's Thoughts: As much as I hate it, I couldn't get into this book. I didn't laugh at the stories or chuckle at raising boys. I really wanted to. But it didn't come. Here are a few reasons why, I believe I had this reaction. With three kiddos five and under, I am tired. Reading some of these stories was like reliving them. Some of the things boys do, I would rather forget! Also, as Moms we tell stories about our kids that are really funny to us and our immediate family but other people just don't get into them like we do. Lastly, boys are boys. They truly are Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man's Soul. With that said, unless you like to read stories about other families, I can not recommend this book.

Contradictory of my last comment, there are a few moms who might find this book helpful. You will learn through reading the Balducci stories that raising boys is different than raising girls. Boys think different, are motivated differently, and reason things out differently. For those Moms who haven't been around boys, this book will be comforting as you realize that your our son isn't crazy.

Rachel Balducci has a popular website called Testosterhome. I would suggest reading some of her stories on her blog and then go from there before deciding to purchase this book. I want to reiterate again, this book is very well written. I have a lot of respect for Balducci as she is extremely talented. This is just not a type of book that I am interested in in this stage of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars i.loved.it. 17 Mar 2010
By Susanna Aughtmon - Published on Amazon.com
I just tucked into How Do You Tuck in a Superhero last night and COULD NOT put it down! I love how Rachel captures the creativity and craziness of boys and the beauty of being a mom of boys. And by beauty I mean, the total disruption of what you thought your life would be like as a mother. Being a mom of boys myself, I saw myself in every chapter, laughed outloud, and was reminded once again that I love that God blessed me with 3 wild and sweet boys. If you are a mom of boys or a mom in general, this is one for you!

Was expecting creative parenting tips for how to wrangle hyper boys and make the routine acivities fun. This book is just a Moms observations about her 5 boys and her own quirks related to parenting. It is okay but not great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love! 9 Jan 2014
By L. R. Mcdaniel - Published on Amazon.com
I loved this book. I have read a ton of parenting books and have gotten bogged down with the do this and do that or the list of horrible things that can happen in parenting. This book is purely a book of funny stories and some of the delightful joys of raising boys! I loved this light and fun parenting book that made me look forward to many more years ahead with my boys!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Book About Raising Boys 22 May 2011
By Irene's Christian Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
I loved, loved, loved this book! The chapters were short and easy to read. The stories were funny and yet meaningful. The book was written as an encouragement to all Mom's who are raising children, especially boys! I laughed at the authors description of her "grassy" back yard and always empty pantry. I especially enjoyed how each story included a spiritual lesson learned. The book was not preachy yet I put it down encouraged that all children are really a gift sent from God. The theme throughout the book was that we as parents are growing up too and can learn from our children as much as they can learn from us.

I was given this book by [...] to review.
