Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"AWESOME. Being the mother of two boys, this would have been a perfect read so I knew what to expect when I was pregnant with my first son... Every single thing in this book is spot on. Having already lived what Jenna wrote, I can say for sure she covered all the bases – from dinosaurs (and lately dragons) to Superhero gear (TONS of it), this is a perfect book for a new mom to read on those seemingly endless nights of nursing and rocking their little man to sleep."
—MomSpective

"Big Rigs for Moms: A Crash Course in Sons for New Mothers is a great baby shower gift for a new mom expecting a baby boy. It demystifies trains and trucks, pirates, freaky insects, dinosaurs, and construction machinery. Plus it suggests 'talking points!'"
—The Gilded Lily

"This is a cute book that gives you some must need to know boy facts."
—Local Haven
