These American adaptations of the U.K. bestseller list-dominating series (the tongue-firmly-in-cheek Ladybird Books for Grown-Ups) address the uniquely modern problems facing today’s “Dicks and Janes” and provide the gentle reassurance needed to grow up without giving up.
The international publishing phenomenon and ridiculously funny new parody series that helps grown-ups learn about the world around them using large clear type, simple and easy-to-grasp words, frequent repetition, and thoughtful matching of text with pictures.

Fireside Grown-Up Guide to the Mom – A mom has two very important jobs: to look after her children and to do everything else well. In this Fireside Grown-Up Guide to Mom, we learn about what moms like (making toys out of corks from her many, many wine bottles), what she hates (the sound of her own voice, which now sounds just like her mom’s), what she’s really thinking about when she leaves her children with a babysitter (whether or not the babysitter can handle these little monsters), and many other enlightening facts.
