When she moved her young family to her husband's hometown in northern France, Karen Le Billon expected some cultural adjustment. But she didn't expect to be lectured for slipping her fussing toddler a snack, or to be forbidden from packing her older daughter a school lunch. Karen is intrigued by the fact that French children happily eat everything-from beets to broccoli, from salad to spinach - while French obesity rates are a fraction of what they are in North America.

Reader apparently thought every single sentence was meant to be tongue in cheek. It's tiresome to listen to a full paragraph that way... think of the weariness from listening to a whole book. And that's just the English phrases. The French was poorly pronounced even to my non-native ear.

As for the book, you're better off with Bringing Up Bebe, which is better written, funnier, and better researched.
