How Do You Tuck In a Superhero? by Rachel Balducci

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 rummaging through the refrigerator. Here she chronicles the exuberant, awesome life of boys through bizarre conversations overheard, unbelievable 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 Chuck Norris, this laugh-out-loud celebration joyfully explores the sweetly wild side of boyhood.

Rachel Balducci is a writer and the mother of five lively boys. Her website,, has been nominated for several awards. Rachel is a former staff writer for the Augusta Chronicle and has been published in numerous magazines, including Good Housekeeping, Faith and Family, and The Word Among Us.

This item received 5 stars overall. Laugh out loud funny no matter how many boys you have in your home.

Even though I only have one son, I have fallen in love with a book about raising 5 sons.  How Do You Tuck in a Superhero? And Other Delightful Mysteries of Raising Boys by supermom, Rachel Balducci will have you laughing no matter how many boys are in your household.
Rachel has put together a book of short stories surrounding her adventures with her 5 sons.  She appears to be a normal mom who has risen to this herculean task with humor, common sense, and lots of love.    She makes the seemingly impossible task of being a mom to so many boys not only seem possible, but downright fun and enjoyable through the personal stories of her family.
My favorite section had to be, “Rules I Can’t Believe I Had to Make.” Included are such gems as “Don’t hogtie your brother and drag him Full Review...

This item received 4 stars overall. A Hilarious Look into Life Raising Adventuresome Boys

     You tuck in a superhero with cleverness and creativity, loads of love, heaping helpings of humor, and gobs of grace.  After babysitting, teaching, tutoring, and nannying boys, I knew I would totally appreciate and find great hilarity in the antics recorded by a mother of five wild and crazy boys (and since the book was published one sweet little girl).  I laughed hysterically at Rachel Balducci’s pithy writing, straight-up observations, and comical quotes.  If you have taken care of boys or spent any length of time around them, you will likely identify with this book and find it highly amusing as much as insanely accurate in describing the temperament of many young boys. 

     How Do You Tuck in a Superhero? is a wonderful collection of true short stories, funny bulle Full Review...
