A Few Things I've Noticed: Essays of Modern Life
"Our children go to a progressive school which I'm beginning to think means a school that will progressively drive their parents out of their minds."
All of the essays in A Few Things I've Noticed have one thing in common-Madora Kibbe's humorous slant on modern family life. Whether it's the momentous purchase of a first pet, the pros and cons of children's piano recitals, the irksome lack of desks in today's elementary schools, or just the simple pleasure of hanging clothes to dry on a clothesline, Madora Kibbe finds fun in the smallest details of everyday doings. These essays are short and to the point, a Polaroid picture of the way we are, or should be. A mostly flattering picture too. No red eyes or goofy grins. See if you recognize anyone you know in this written collection of snapshots.
