Publishers Description
When Rachel Balducci looks for material for her writing, she doesn't have to look far. Her subject matter can be found climbing through the window, hanging on to the edge of the roof, and always at the refrigerator. Here she chronicles the exuberant, awesome life of boys through conversations overheard, rules she's been forced to make, and the many episodes of boy behavior that continue to mystify mothers worldwide. From the care and feeding of her team, to travels out in public, to their wide-eyed adoration of" Walker, Texas Ranger," this laugh-out-loud celebration joyfully explores the sweet and wild side of boyhood.

"How Do You Tuck in a Superhero?" by Rachel Balducci  Jun 4, 2010
Having grown up as the only girl between three brothers, I can attest to the shenanigans boys can and do get into. I think it is an inherent trait of boys to be curious and daring. Rachel Balducci catches it all in her book, How Do You Tuck In a Superhero? Besides all the antics the boys get into and the distinct rules they as parents have to make, she also offers lots of great advice and encouragement on raising boys, mixed with lots of laughs.

My take on Rachel's book: Don't sweat the small stuff. Zero in on the important things that matter: spiritual growth, Godly character, safety, and the tenacity it takes to be a future great husband and father.

This is a book I won and take the pleasure of blogging on to help parents of boys to raise Godly men. An additional book I would recommend is Bringing Up Boys by James C. Dobson
 
Good writer, authentic, inspiring, sobering, beautiful  Jun 2, 2010
I loved this book so much I couldn't put it down. Rachel Balducci is a great, witty writer,who is very funny and it seems effortless for her. Myself being the mother of boys, her stories put things into perspective for me, and helped prepare me for what I already see coming--the good, the bad, the joys and sorrows and humor of being a mother. While humorous, her characterizations of her experiences with her boys, are still positive, uplifting, and she has her priorities right. I am so happy that she had a girl now :)
 
A pithy, humourous guide to little boys....  May 28, 2010

I decided to review this book, simply because little boys confuse me. Sometimes I feel as if the boys who inhabit my children's ministry program speak a different language.

This fact that is especially evident right now, as I try to design a mission trip t-shirt that will appeal to the four boys going on the trip, but not "gross out" the 11 girls who will also want to wear the shirt. - Apparently, most of my designs are "too girlie" for most boys - go figure!

Honestly, I have to say, Balducci's stories have truly captured the spirit of living in a house full of testosterone. I laughed out loud at times, as I read about her exploits with dinosaurs, Legos, weapons of mass destruction and a Yahtzee game that almost sent her over the "edge."

While I'm still struggling to understand the best way to minister to little boys, Balducci's book has helped capture the idea of what it means to raise young men in this century - and the courage and strength it takes for the moms who set out to accomplish this task.

I highly recommend this book! It could definitely be subtitled: the care and feeding of an exotic species - the human boy.

You will probably walk away from reading this book with a new understanding of how little boys think and feel about a variety of issues and ideas (especially when it comes to dressing them alike).

If you have a mom friend who is struggling to understand her sons, this book might just provide the answers she's looking for - or at least it might give her some hope for the future! (Or the knowledge that she is not on her own!)

This book will definitely be on my list of books to pass along to parents - in fact, I've already been telling people about it (it's that good)
 
Superheroes have never been so appealing  May 24, 2010
I'd love to quote you a pithy passage from Rachel Balducci's delightful new book, How Do You Tuck in a Superhero? And Other Delightful Mysteries of Raising Boys, but I'm afraid I can't.

The day after I finished it, I lent it to our parish secretary, instructing her to pass it along to someone else in the parish office. I'm not sure who has it now, though I do know the second person started laughing as she raved about it to me.

I'm betting that's a common response. I don't have sons, but I have a husband (who totally didn't "get" why I was quoting aloud and laughing uproariously so much during his basketball playoffs) and I have nephews and I have men in my life.

And this book explains SO MUCH.

Well...maybe I'm not being fair. What Balducci does, and does the way she does everything else, from her personal blog to her work at Faith & Family Live, is to use humor to bring us to our senses about a few things.

Having a bunch of kids isn't an impossible scenario. It can be, from what I've gathered, a fun thing. And joy can be found all around you, in the bugs you eat (or, ahem, don't) and the company you keep.

Balducci takes her reader deep into the world she lives in (which as of April has a little girl in it), and we find ourselves home, in the best sense of the word. Here's a family that seems like just the crew you'd invite over for a cookout and a rip-roarin, laughing good time.

To call this book delightful is to do it a vast disservice, though that's the first word that came to mind when I put it down, disappointed to see it end. It is a tribute to family life, to pursuing the dream God gives you, and laughing all the way.
 
Funny Book  May 3, 2010
This is a fun book to read. I also have only boys in my house, so this is right up my alley. It has been an encouragement to me on frustrating days that I am not alone, that boys all over really do behave this way (not just my kiddos) and that I can get through it.

She is funny. But also has encouraging words.
