NPR asked me to write about a favorite book, and I chose Adam Rex’s The True Meaning of Smekday. That piece just came out on the NPR Web site–here it is.

One note: This is in a section called Guilty Pleasures, but I do not feel the least bit guilty about Smekday. It’s brilliant.

P.S. We had a family reunion this weekend, and the best line of the weekend was my husband saying to the room service guy, “Come on in, but we do have our baby sleeping in the bathroom.”

It was a really big bathroom with a closing door. Excellent for a Pack n Play.
