MOB Rule Lessons Learned by a Mother Of Boys by Hannah Evans

The Lovereading4Kids comment

For parents everywhere who know very well what a 'fizzy willy' is, but refuse to drive faster just to bring one about. MOB Rule is the funny, honest and eye-opening account of the author's experiences as a Mother of Boys. Supplemented by recipes, quizzes, mnemonics and mysteries, it is the indispensible book for anyone who finds themselves adrift on a sea of testosterone, wondering when the lifeboat is going to show up. You may be outnumbered, your face may be frazzled and your toe-nails black and bare, but know that, far from being alone, you're part of a very special club. Welcome to ...the MOB!


MOB Rule Lessons Learned by a Mother Of Boys by Hannah Evans

You know you've joined the MOB when you hear...'My, are they all yours?' 'Bless you!' (Occasionally) 'Poor you!' (Frequently) 'Lucky you!' (Once) And of course, the ultimate: 'So ...are you going for a girl?' Hannah Evans has three small boys. In her world, farting is so much more interesting than phonics, dam-building trumps damsels in distress any day and, astonishingly, she now instinctively knows the difference between a Frontloader and a JCB. It's a world of mud - and just occasionally blood - sweat and tears. It is also a world of indescribable joy.


Gives an insight into the challenges, dramas and fun of raising boys ... had me in stitches. If you're a mum of boys, you'll love it Mother & Baby

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
