Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.

The hilarious, irreverent Jen Dixon is class mom - again - for her son’s fifth-grade year, and a class bully, spin-teacher training, and her irresistible granddaughter keep her on her toes and perpetually in yoga pants.

The now beloved hero of Laurie Gelman’s Class Mom and You’ve Been Volunteered has a lot on her plate this year in Yoga Pant Nation - from childcare duties for her daughter’s two-year-old to her determined mission to become a spin instructor. When her husband’s ex-wife shows up to her first ever class as a full-fledged teacher - and compliments her performance! - she can’t help but wonder what the catch is.

Throw in a mandate from the PTA president to raise $10,000 for the fifth-graders’ new Chrome books and her daughter’s mother-in-law (whom no one has ever met) visiting for Christmas, and Jen is going to need more than her regular spin class to get her through the year. But as ever, humor is her best stress relief. Her acerbic emails to the class parents and friendly spars with her daughter over how organic is organic enough for baby food will have you laughing out loud and texting Jen’s best lines to your friends.

Yoga pants

I loved this story. I can see so much if my life in the words written by the author. I usually listen to my books on long car rides or walking the dog. So many times my husband has asked what’s so funny. Keep writing about life experience and I will keep listening

Lighthearted & relatable for moms

I absolutely loved the fun and relatable nature of Class Mom and was excited to find Laurie continued with You’ve Been Volunteered. This Monday, I woke in a mood, we’d been dumped with more snow, keeping kids home from school again and winter blues are in full force. I decided to see what I had on my wishlist but ended up seeing a suggestion for Yoga Pant Nation. I decided to start that hoping it would get me out of my funk and boy, it was exactly what I needed. I adore these characters and truly appreciate Jen’s dry and sarcastic humor. I also thoroughly enjoy listening to Laurie narrate her work.

Well done once again!

Sensational!!

I LOVE these books and crack up the entire time I'm listening...the writing is remarkable. The experiences are soooo relatable. My boys are now teenagers in high school, and her retellings transport me back to those earlier days volunteering at the boys school. YIKES!! Lol.

Please please please take us all the way through Max becoming and all the twists and turns of the family and friends along the way!! I know you have a life outside of writing...but hey we're all invested now!!

THANK YOU for your talent!

Classroom mom must read

I love all her books in this series. The first was definitely the best but the two following are still very entertaining to read. As a former room mom I could relate to all her complaints and wish I had the guts to write her clever and witty room mom emails. Great beach read/listen and who doesn’t need a good laugh during the pandemic.

Never a good idea to have Authors read their work

The author’s voice is so shrill it hurt my ears. It certainly hurt my enjoyment of the book. There were many moments that made me smile but the story is slow. I got bored and stopped

Very entertaining!

I loved this third story of Jen Dixon! I hope Laurie Gelmond writes 4th! Can’t she be Maude’s class Mom? Please?

Still funny

If you loved the first two books in this series, you’ll enjoy this one; Jen Dixon continues her indefatigable, humorous ways. The author, Laurie Gelman, is a great narrator.

Loved this book!

After listening to every book on current Politics I could get my hands on this last year I was more than ready for a good laugh.
I'm a retired educator and have raised 10 kids. I've been room Mom more times than I can count.
I found this book hilarious! I also have a 25 year old daughter that is a single Mom to a two year old girl. I totally related to Jen on that level. ( Does Laurie know my daughter?)
From the very beginning it had me laughing out loud, even when I was in the car, alone. I couldn't stop listening to it, ear pods in place. I'm hoping when the time comes they'll let me back into the Spa where I get my monthly Mani-Pedi as I was busting with laughter there too, hands in lap, eyes closed.
I thoroughly enjoyed the author, Laurie Gelman reading it. I think author read books are on a whole different level.
This book was funny and lighthearted. You might not learn anything by reading it but you will get a little glimpse into the life of a Room Mom. I just downloaded her first book. Can't wait.
Good job Laurie!

Loved revisiting these characters!

I read Laurie Gelman's first two books, so I was anticipating this one, and was not disappointed. I think this one may have even been funnier than the last one. I enjoyed revisiting these characters I've gotten to "know" and Laurie's witty sense of humor. I hope she writes more!
