"While Jessie Loeb doesn’t claim to be a parenting expert, her memoir PUDDLE SPLASHING does offer authentic advice and comfort, especially when it comes to recognizing that being a parent, along with everything else, is a big, messy, worrisome but most of all joyous adventure. A professional doula, Loeb writes about her own parenthood journey with wisdom and deft hands." -Jacquelyn Mitchard author THE DEEP END OF THE OCEAN and contributing editor PARENTS Magazine

"With grace and humor, Jessie Loeb’s short stories focus on the loss of her torch-song belting mother, the heart-melting bond between her and her father, and how she puts to use as a parent now all that she learned from each of them. Like a life raft on the sobering waters of adulthood Loeb gingerly transports you back to your childhood days with love, wit, and a sense that all of the mistakes you may have made up to this point were worth it."  -Jen Nails, author of One Hundred Spaghetti Strings

"Any time Jessie Loeb tells a story, I want to scooch closer and listen. Give yourself a break from modern parenting mania, and let Puddle Splashing take you away...to your 1980s childhood. Loeb’s writing comforts like a soft hand on your Dorothy Hamill-cut forehead and buzzes like the bubbles from a stolen sip of your babysitter’s Tab. Jessie Loeb’s voice jumps from the page like a juicy secret in your ear, a peal of laughter from your BFF, and a dose of calm to your soul."  -Ann Imig, author of LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER: What She Said Then, What We’re Saying Now
