Full of fun, whimsical details and a relatable cast of characters, Would I Trade My Parents? will resonate with parents and kids alike, as readers remember why they would never trade their parents for the world!

What child hasn’t thought about trading his or her parents for the ones next door? Who wouldn’t be discouraged if their parents didn’t allow them to have pets or go camping or drink chocolate milk before dinner?

In the newest picture book by New York Times #1 bestselling author Laura Numeroff, a little boy ponders why his friends’ parents are so special and why sometimes he wishes he could trade . . . But then he remembers his very own parents and all the amazing things that only they know how to do—like the way they always read with him or leave notes in his lunch box or take him on family bike rides. In fact, his parents are the best of all!
