If you have any type of family you already know that best laid plans go awry. Whether we call them Murphy's Laws or by some other name, we just don't always get what we hope for. In A Made Bed is More Fun to Jump On and Other Family Laws, best-selling author Rick Walton cleverly explores the crazy truths of family life, whether we're dealing with babies, toddlers, teenagers, bedtime, playtime, food and more. Funny, clever, and poignantly honest, this book is perfect for those parents who while doing their best just can't quite fend off the notorious "Murphy"!
Imagine driving down an empty road in the middle of nowhere, your spouse asleep in the passenger seat, kids fighting in the back, two more hours to the next hotel you hope has a vacancy, you're struggling to keep your eyes open, and you can't remember the last time you ate. Just thinking about this would make even the most resilient parents second-guess the idea of taking their children on a long road trip. Is it really worth the trouble? The truth is, any family can take a long road trip. All it takes is preparation, time behind the wheel, and determination to keep your family's spirits up, no matter the situation. In Road Tripping: A Parent's Guide to Planning and Surviving the Annual Car Trip, authors Loralee Leavitt and Rick Walton take you step-by-step through what you need to know to survive any situation as a family on the road. Not only do they help you decide what to pack, but they also provide resources on where to go, what to do, and how to get the best discounts. They even give tips for single parents who want to spend some quality time with their children, but aren't sure if they could do it alone. So don't let that open road scare you. Take time to prepare, pack up the kids, and start out on your next, fun-filled adventure.

Unlike her human counterpart, Mother Rabbit knows just what to do and where to tuck her twenty-six sleepy darlings, from "1 was named Abel./He slept on the table" to "26 was named Zed./He slept on the shed." Paige Miglio's soft-toned watercolors are a lovely complement to this lullaby.
Everyone knows you don't always get what you hope for. But what do you get instead? What if you got tidal waves, banana splits, tornadoes, castles and kings, pirates, flying appliances, and even space aliens? What if your school disappeared-but the space alien didn't?

It's enough to make you think twice about what you hope for ...
