Book Description

Universal and timeless, Delia Ephron's How to Eat Like a Child is a delightful revisiting of the joys -- and tricky ploys -- of childhood. Made into a children's television special and a musical theater revue performed across the country each year, How to Eat Like a Child offers advice beyond the artful etiquette of food consumption. Ephron also teaches us "How to Laugh Hysterically," "How to Have a Birthday Party," "How to Torture Your Sister," and much, much more. As the Washington Post Book World noted, `After the giggles of recognition have subsided, one thing will be very clear: all adults are kids in grown-ups' clothing."

This is a hilarious book that I enjoyed very much when I was young. Recently, I decided to send a copy to some young friends who are now the age I was when I loved it. The thank you call said it all -- there was so much giggling in the background that I could barely hear their mother, who was giggling so much that it was hard to understand her. It looked like it was going to be a race between mother and eldest son as to who got to read the book first.

Upshot? If you want your endorphins boosted sky high, grab a copy and remember what it felt like to be NOT grown up!
