Stop Dressing Your Six-Year Old Like A Skank...Review

About the book:
Celia Rivenbark's essays about life in today's South are like caramel popcorn---sweet, salty, and utterly irresistible. Celia Rivenbark is a master at summing up the South in all its glorious excesses and contradictions. In this collection of screamingly funny essays. You'll discover: How to get your kid into a character breakfast at Disneyworld (or run the risk of eating chicken out of a bucket with Sneezy), secrets of celebrity moms (don't hate them because they're beautiful when there are so many other reasons to hate them), and eBay addiction and why. It ain't worth having if it ain't on eBay (Whoa! Is that Willie Nelson's face in your grits?) Why today's children's clothes make six-year-olds look like Vegas showgirls with an abundance of anger issues. And so much more! Rivenbark is an intrepid explorer and acid commentator on the land south of the Mason-Dixon line.

Laugh out loud funny. Some questionable humor and a sprinkling of swear words, but absolutely hysterical. You'll even laugh out loud at the stuff you think you shouldn't.

She completely captures the essence of southern people.

I LOVE the skank chapter. It's so totally true!
