A great book for discussion between adults. Not all questions are child-friendly. This book will get you thinking and discussing...

Enjoyable questions that really made dinner time conversations more interesting. Unfortunately, I have a jealous husband and a few of the questions "Who would you choose to have an elegant dinner with?" and "What living person would you choose to spend the night with" just caused him to see red! (Even though I knew better than to even answer these, and wished my 14 year old had known better than to even read them outloud! Can't blame it on her, I should have read through it ahead of time!) Anyway, great conversation starters for a family, but if you have a jealous husband, PRE-READ the QUESTIONS!

Questions you would have never thought to ask yourself [or others!]:

"If you were to adopt an orphan from another country, which country would the child come from?"

"If you had to name the worst job in the world, what would it be?"

"If you could choose the very last thing you would see before death, what would it be?

Seriously. I have seen it annoy several peoples boyfriends. I thought it was cute and fun. Men seem to not think it is cute and or fun.

What a great conversation starter this book is. With three teenagers at home we make it a habit to eat dinner together at the dining room table every night that somebody doesn't have something else going on outside the house (basketball practice, wrestling practice, lessons, etc.) Keeping my kids engaged was easier with the help of this book.

Rather than just "how was your day?" and the rote response of "fine." We take turns picking a question from the book and asking everyone at the table. It helped keep the lines of communication open and generated some lively discussions.

My kids even instigate this when we have "extras" over for meals. Anytime we sit down at the dining room table the kids will pick up the book (conveniently left next to the napkins) and read a question.

I'd highly recommend this for any household, but especially those households with kids.
