Book of the Month: How to Be a Family: The Year I Dragged My Kids Around the World to Find a New Way to Be Together by Dan Kois
What happens when one frustrated dad turns his kids’ lives upside down in search of a new way to be a family?
A journalistic memoir filled with heart, empathy, and lots of whining, How to Be a Family: The Year I Dragged My Kids Around the World to Find a New Way to Be Together will make readers dream about the amazing adventures their own families might take.
Dan Kois and his wife always did their best for their kids. Busy professionals living in the DC suburbs, they scheduled their children’s time wisely, and when they weren’t arguing over screen time, the Kois family – Dan, his wife Alia, and their two preteen daughters – could each be found searching for their own happiness. But aren’t families supposed to achieve happiness together?
In this eye-opening, heartwarming, and very funny family memoir, the fractious, loving Kois’ go in search of other places on the map that might offer them the chance to live away from home-but closer together. Over a year the family lands in New Zealand, the Netherlands, Costa Rica, and small-town Kansas. The goal? To get out of their rut of busyness and distractedness and to see how other families live outside the East Coast parenting bubble.
We’ll be talking to the author at our next virtual book club meeting on June 29th. Come join us! (It’s free.)

The discounts aren’t as big as Amazon but you are helping support small booksellers that are the lifeblood for many communities. (But, if you only use Amazon, here’s the link to our Amazon page too.)
