Book Review: Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed!

Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed is a funny look at the Liberal side of politics. It is written from a conservative point of view, in a way that children can understand what is going on. Being a conservative myself, this book really brought home things that are going on, and also reminded me of so many of the liberals in goverment today!

Two little boys want a swing set very bad. Mom and Dad are trying to teach the boys that you don't really appreciate things, if they are always given to you. It is better to work for what you want, and it would mean more. So, they decided to sell lemonade to make the money to buy the swing.

They had a dream they were selling their lemonade in Liberland, saving their money, helping others, like ‘good little boys’, and in stepped the politicians (liberals) and started telling them how to run their business, what they could do and couldn’t do. Before the dream was over, the liberals had taken over.

I believe the book shows how government seems to get bigger and bigger, and wants to run every thing in our lives. We see it happening over and over in the real world. But, these little boys didn’t let their dream of owning their swing set die. So they decided they’d sell lemonade and have that set by summer. The liberals weren’t going to stop them!

I highly recommend this as a reader for the youngsters in your family.

The author of the book is Katharine DeBrecht. It is also very well illustrated by Jim Hummel.

Note: Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed! was given to me by the publisher, World Ahead Publishing, Inc, as a free gift for reviewers.

It is so funny! But, I don't know how they would view it, unless they are able to laugh at themselves - for you can find some particular Democrats in that story. :)

Thank goodness we are getting rid of that big bad wolf FEMA that was always trying to run people's lives by coming to their rescue when they had a disaster. The very idea! Why that's almost downright un-American.
