Dawn's uniquely sarcastic yet playful tone has entertained and guided an enthusiastic and devoted readership over the years.

Praise For The Overly Honest Baby Book: Uncensored Memories from Baby’s First Year (Sh!t No One Tells You #3.5)

"Any parent who does not find this book funny and does not want to give it to a new parent or soon-to-be-parent just doesn't have the sort of sense of humor needed to bring up a child while keeping at least a few parental brain cells intact. That parent should probably hold onto The Overly Honest Baby Book for himself or herself, to use with the next baby."—Infodad blog

"Dawn Dais' slim hardbound volume is not only's a perfect release for all the unwonderful baby memories."—The Entertainment Report

"Dawn Dais has thoughtfully and humorously spun the standard "Baby's First Year" with a parent's version that has me giggling like a school girl... literally the perfect gift for a first-time mom."—
