Review for Horizontal Parenting

Review for Horizontal Parenting

Horizontal Parenting, Parenting, Michelle Woo, Dasha Tolstikova, Kid, Parents, Fun, Exercises/Games, Non-Fiction I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I am not a parent myself, but I have done lots of babysitting, I worked at daycares and other places. So while I don’t know what it is to have kids 24/7, I do know that kids can tire you out. Haha. This book looked really interesting and I am really happy I was able to read it!

So, you are a parent, or you work with kids, and you want to play a game, but you are just too tired. Well, this book is perfect for you! Because all you have to do is lie down. Yep, it is that simple. Either on the floor or couch, just lie down. You may need some small things to go along with, but some of these fun ideas don’t need that and require the kids to get you items or use the toys they have. The ideas were so much fun to read and at times I just loved how creative they were and how much fun they were. Not just for the kids btw, but also for the parents.

Some of my favourite games from this book are: Secret agents (you are the spy boss and you give your kid a series of tasks), Horizontal Hokey Pokey (aka dance while lying on the floor), Roll the Burrito (use a blanket, lie in the middle, let your kid add ingredients (toys etc.) and then roll it all up), Couch fishing (I remember doing that when I was young, so much fun). And there are many other games that sounded like a delight to me!

The book is also full with illustrations to go with the fun exercises/things to do and I really love their style, they really made it even more fun~

All in all, Highly Recommended! I am sure this book will be used a lot, I just love that parents can take a bit of a rest and still have fun with their kids.

Star rating, 4.5 stars
