I found this book to be a very heart-warming and uplifting read. It is filled with a cornucopia of adorable anecdotes revealing the mystery and joys of raising boys in a faith-filled home.

I always swore my sons needed instructions, after a bunch of child rearing books and self help and discovery books I decided they were going to be little monsters forever. Until coming across this book I then realized they aren't monsters but just boys. They will always be called "Beastie Boys" as it's accurate with how they act, the attitudes and amazing disasters that happen in this house but it is certainly normal after reading her journey and can relate 100%. A must read for any parent with boys!

I'd love to quote you a pithy passage from Rachel Balducci's delightful new book, How Do You Tuck in a Superhero? And Other Delightful Mysteries of Raising Boys, but I'm afraid I can't. The day after I finished it, I lent it to our parish secretary, instructing her to pass it along to someone else in the parish office. I'm not sure who has it now, though I do know the second person started laughing as she raved about it to me. I'm betting that's a common response. I don't have sons, but I have a husband (who totally didn't "get" why I was quoting aloud and laughing uproariously so much during his basketball playoffs) and I have nephews and I have men in my life. And this book explains SO MUCH. Well...maybe I'm not being fair. What Balducci does, and does the way she does everything else, from her personal blog to her work at Faith & Family Live, is to use humor to bring us to our senses about a few things. Having a bunch of kids isn't an impossible scenario. It can be, from what I've gathered, a fun thing. And joy can be found all around you, in the bugs you eat (or, ahem, don't) and the company you keep. Balducci takes her reader deep into the world she lives in (which as of April has a little girl in it), and we find ourselves home, in the best sense of the word. Here's a family that seems like just the crew you'd invite over for a cookout and a rip-roarin, laughing good time. To call this book delightful is to do it a vast disservice, though that's the first word that came to mind when I put it down, disappointed to see it end. It is a tribute to family life, to pursuing the dream God gives you, and laughing all the way.

Cute stories, but lacked clear direction. seemed to be a collection of memories for the mother, and while it did capture many things "boy," i lost interest in it a little over half way.

Having grown up as the only girl between three brothers, I can attest to the shenanigans boys can and do get into. I think it is an inherent trait of boys to be curious and daring. Rachel Balducci catches it all in her book, How Do You Tuck In a Superhero? Besides all the antics the boys get into and the distinct rules they as parents have to make, she also offers lots of great advice and encouragement on raising boys, mixed with lots of laughs. My take on Rachel's book: Don't sweat the small stuff. Zero in on the important things that matter: spiritual growth, Godly character, safety, and the tenacity it takes to be a future great husband and father. This is a book I won and take the pleasure of blogging on to help parents of boys to raise Godly men.
