I LOVE her, and she has written a children's book  Big Words for Little People.


I love it when kids use "big" words. Her premise is that "words provide architecture for thoughts", and using words appropriately and inappropriately.

I love her too, and will make a point of picking up her book for Christmas gifts. Thanks.

She has written several children's books. My favorite, since we adopted our children, is "Tell Me Again About the Night I was Born." Also, "When I Was Little, A Four-Year-old's Memoir of her Youth," "Where Do Balloons Go?" and "Is There Really a Human Race?" There may be more, but those are her books that we own. All are really good books. My 12 year old DD still reads them because she enjoys the humor in them.

I love the drawings in the first two you mentioned. Haven't seen the others.

I heard her on NPR talking about "The human race". Don't have kids but love what she had to say.:)

Personally I think she is really opinnated and into herself.  Yes, I do agree with her not having face lifts, and other types of surgery, but it really annoys me when she is on stage no one else can get in word in.  Just my opinion.

And you are certainly welcome to it. I think it is pretty cute and funny. And in a Fish Called Wanda, what was different. She IS who she is.

Never saw A Fish Called Wanda, but loved both her and Arnold in True Lies.

Oh, rent Fish!!  Kevin Kline too.  Quirky to the nth.

Will definitely rent it...or perhaps ask younger DD.  She's a DVD nut, who has hundreds, so she probably has it.

Oh please, yes, do rent A Fish Called Wanda. It might be the funniest movie ever made. And you have to tell me, yes or no, if the Kevin Kline character reminds you of Tazz...

I have not seen "Fish" either. Do you know what it is rated, if it would be okay for my kids (9 and 12)? It is supposed to rain (we need it) all weekend, so we are baking and renting movies. Thanks.

I think it's R. I thought my kids would like it, but I'm sure I checked it.


I Google "parent movie reviews" and check those sites. Some indicate ratings for swearing (which doesn't bother me much), sex, gore, violence, drug and alcohol use. They're really useful for when DH remembers how great a movie is, but not how inappropriate it really is for an 11-year-old :)

The scene in "Wanda" where she finally sets Kevin Kline straight in hysterical. Really.

The trouble today is that almost everyone is famous and almost no-one is interesting. (paraphrased Tina Brown)
