We all have those embarrassing moments. We also have those family members who can be rather embarrassing. Do you remember having to go to school functions with your embarrassing family? Did you worry about them embarrassing you in front of your friends and teachers? Today's book is about just that. The book is Embarrassing George by Kimber Morgan and illustrated by Jessica Kwan.

From Me:

Now this book is perfect for this time of year as well as May and June. We had our Back to School Night this past week and I was talking to one of my high school students about how I met her mom at it. The first thing the student asked me, "Did she say anything embarrassing?" That worry of family embarrassing us seems to get worse as they grow into teenagers. This book is about a young boy who feels his family is strange. He worries what they might do at Family Night at his school. He shares that his friends think members of their families are strange too. The worry is real. We have all been there. 

I love how this book goes through all the things George is worried might happen. He talks about how his sister is obsessed with her phone and making kissy faces into it. How is father yelled at him to be quiet outside and his father was in his underwear. The stories go on. Will his friends find his family weird? I love that the book goes through the night and George discovers that everyone's family has its own kind of weird and the truth is everyone can do something weird or embarrassing including him. It is a sweet story that shares something very real for many kids. Like I mentioned one of my high school kids, well actually more than one, was worried about what their parents said at Back to School Night. The worry doesn't go away until much later if ever! It is something we all need to accept and realize we are each unique and that is what sometimes causes the embarrassment of others. This book shares this message perfectly!
