Reasons My Kid Is Crying

By Greg Pembroke

Three Rivers Press (NY), Paperback, 9780804139830, 201pp.

Publication Date: April 1, 2014

A glimpse into the tribulations of parenting that is part documentary, part therapy, and completely hilarious.
It all started when busy father Greg Pembroke posted a few pictures online of his three-year-old son, mid-tantrum, alongside the reason his son was crying: He had broken his bit of cheese in half. In "Reasons My Kid is Crying, "Greg collects together photos sent from parents around the world, documenting the many, completely logical reasons why small children cry. Among them: I let him play on the grass . . . He ran out of toys to throw into his pool . . . The neighbor's dog isn t outside . The result is both an affectionate portrait of the universal, baffling logic of toddlers and a reminder for burned-out parents everywhere that they are not alone.
