Knucklehead, by Jon Scieszka

A combination of Leave It To Beaver, The Brady Bunch and Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader? Knucklehead by Jon Scieszka is a hilarious look back in time - when kids still played outside until dark, read under the covers with a flashlight, had family dinners each night and wore hand me downs. Secretly, parents still want these close bonds of a family life and kids would like to have set limits.

Knucklehead clearly captures growing up in a not so technologically advanced world and leaves you with plenty of ideas for bringing the emphasis back to family time, creativity and outrageous fun. This book is a roadmap for parents longing to create strong family bonds and an eye opener for techno teens who couldn’t imagine an hour without a cell phone.
