This book was very funny. The young boy Brain believed that being a kid was hard work for him and that he would be better off retired; so his parents let him go visit a retirement home for a few weeks to see how it would be. He quickly realized that being retired was cool but being a kid was even better. this book shows kids that no matter what stage of life you are in, you will always have to work in some kind of way.

A silly premise with a great message at the end. I love that Brian realizes that even with all of the work involved with being a kid, there are happy memories along with the bad ones. A fun book for any kid, but especially somebody dealing with a lot.

Jon Agee is a wonderful author and illustrator! In this book he did a great job explaining the difficulties that children face in their everyday schedules. ( )

This is a cute story about a retirement home for kids. The wit and humor are both appealing to children and adults. ( )

Brian has enough of being a kid. Between soccer practice, violin class, babysitting his sister, and eating his vegetables, Brian decides it is time for a change. He retires to Happy Sunset Retirement Community in Florida. At first, Brian has a great time golfing, napping, and watching movies with his new older friends. He is not as thrilled with the long documentaries, weekly checkups, or prune juice smoothies. Brian realizes he does not fit in with retired life. Some advice from his new friend Harvey gives him a new perspective on why it’s great to be a kid, and Brian happily returns to his former life. Agee’s charming cartoony artwork add humor to an already silly tale. Some diversity present in illustrations of both school children and adults at the retirement community. Many children will relate to Brian’s woeful attitude on the rigorous demands of childhood. Others will laugh at Brian’s hijinks at the retirement community, and this humor may encourage reluctant readers. Recommended. Ages 4-8. ( )
