Get a (Hilarious) Glimpse Into the Mind of a Toddler

Reasons My Kid Is Crying is the laugh-out-loud funny book inspired by the author’s now-famous website,

It all started when busy father Greg Pembroke posted a few pictures online of his three-year-old son, mid-tantrum, alongside the reason his son was crying: He had broken his bit of cheese in half.

In Reasons My Kid is Crying, Greg collects together photos sent from parents around the world, documenting the many, completely logical reasons why small children cry.
