The American Sandbox Dictionary of Children's Mispronounced English

far-mer-john: Also called farmerjohn cheese. A hard, dry Italian skim milk cheese usually grated and served atop foods such as pizza or salad. I want more farmerjohn on my pizza, please!
man-y-nems: A world-famous confection of milk chocolate with a hard candy shell that may not melt in your hands but will certainly have disastrous results if left in children's pockets for long periods of time. Mommy, can I have some more manynems? Mine are all melted!
If the statements above brought a smile to your face then you must check out The American Sandbox Dictionary of Children's Mispronounced English! This fun book is a compilation of the hilarious words children stumble over on a daily basis. Alvin Zamudio has collected the best entries from thousands of submissions from his popular website Parents from across the country have shared their kids' mispronunciations, you'll find many of them in this entertaining book.

I loved reading the anecdotal stories and seeing the child-like drawings throughout this book. I also love the journal section in the back of the book! It's a great place to record the special words that your children have created over the years.

This book would make a great gift for new parents or even new grandparents! We encourage you to check this book out today!
