    Outrageously confident and sweetly indignant, The Honest Toddler tackles everything from preferred toddler foods (unbroken crackers and undiluted juice), unconditional love (accept them as they are-pants or no pants), sleep and potty training methods (none), play date etiquette (mi casa es not su casa), and the proper response to random aggression at the playground (embrace it, park justice is messy but swift).

    What would have made The Honest Toddler better?

    Having a less annoying voice narrate the book. Actually, I'm not sure if it's the tone of the voice or the actual text that's annoying. It sounds like a grown man baby-talking the whole time. I couldn't get through 23 minutes of it.


    What could Bunmi Laditan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I understand what the Author was going for - a book from the Toddler's point of view - but it actually sounds like a toddler is talking to you. What I was hoping for was the point of view in a more matter-of-fact tone. It also has a lot of sarcasm (or at least I hope they weren't serious), which I did not find to be helpful.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I think the Narrator did all he could with what he was given. He did try to be as funny & charismatic as he could.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Sorry. I couldn't really get past the annoying tone and sarcasm to remember anything worthwhile.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like a refund. If this was a physical book, I would have returned it.
