Have you ever noticed the “awkward” photos on Facebook of the babies? If so did you take the time to click through and look at them? I bet they made you laugh. Some probably made you laugh really hard! Did you know that those photos now have a place in a book called Born to be Awkward by Mike Bender and Doug Chernack? I was lucky enough to have a chance to review this book courtesy of Blogging for Books.
The first 5 chapters of the book is filled with hilarious photos of babies that are destined to make you laugh. This breaks down to 137 pages full of photos to make you smile and chuckle. Can you think of a better way to spend your evenings, especially if you have had a bad day. The book has some photos with a small story about the picture you are looking at called Behind the Awkwardness and then there is the Re-Creating the Awkwardness where you will see a baby picture and then a re-creation of that picture of the adult. These will really cause an outburst of laughter.
This book also has a 6th chapter where you can place your own photos of your children’s awkward moments. There are 9 pages where you can put photos. Some of these pages have spots for more than just the one picture.
I would give this book a 5 out of 5 stars. It is really fun to read through and look at the pictures. Since it is mostly designed with photos and there is not a lot of reading it is fairly easy to complete the book. It is not one of those that will take forever to finish, in fact it is so funny it will probably not take you long at all. I would be very hard pressed if I had to pick a favorite out of the book. I would find one that I was sure was my favorite and then in a couple pages I would find one to rival the other for favorite spot.
If you like a good laugh I suggest reading Born to be Awkward. If you are as hooked as I am you do not have to stop reading and laughing there. There are 3 more books in the Awkward series that I know of. Awkward Family Photos, Awkward Family Pet Photos, and Awkward Family Holiday Photos. I would really like to check the rest of these books out but especially the Holiday Photos one.
As previously stated I did receive a copy of this book for my review from Blogging for Books. The opinions here are 100% honest and my own.
