Grams Bought Book For Six-Year-Old Grandchild But Didn't Realize It's Full Of Swear Words.

Funny |

You could never imagine Grandma picking something out of the library that was bad for your kid.

Grandmothers are awesome! They spoil us in ways our parents don't. They bake cookies for us, and we can share our deepest, darkest secrets with them. They can even guide us when we're going through a rough patch because they have a lifetime of wisdom to bestow on us. But when it comes to picking out gifts, let's just say they really need our parents beside them to double check before they buy anything. Just ask one six-year-old who got what she thought was the coolest gift ever from Grandma. But what she ended up with was a book full of things that made her parents blush.This mom learned that not every bookstore offers content that's on the parent-approved reading list. But boy was she shocked when her 6-year-old daughter opened the book grams got her.

On the outside, this book looks like it's made just for kids and absolutely harmless.

Unfortunately, the family learned that some books can be very deceiving on the outside. But most of us would have been fooled too with the cutesy illustrations that are a-typical of any kid's book.

When the 6-year-old opened "If Animals Could Talk" she was totally confused by the words.

Emmersyn's mom, Tiffany, who's 32, had a better understanding of what the content inside represented and she couldn't believe that a kid's book would have references to private parts, drugs, and lots of swear words.

Tiffany shared photos of the book's interior on social media to warn other parents.

She wasn't upset by any means. In fact, she actually thought the whole thing was really funny. But she felt it was important to let other parents know to take a look inside the book before buying anything for your kids.

Tiffany's husband was also taking the whole situation with a sense of humor.

In fact, according to Tiffany, he couldn't stop laughing, which suggests this book will probably stay on the top shelf for the adults to read until Emmersyn is old enough to read it.

Some of the pages aren't nearly as bad as others in the not-so-kid-friendly book.

Tiffany decided to call her mom, Geri, anyway and tell her about the book she had gotten for her granddaughter. The first thing she asked was, if she had actually opened it before she bought the book.

Grandma's admitted she had not read it and that was painfully obvious.

At first, Emmersyn's parents were mortified, but ironically, the book is actually quite popular with folks on Twitter. And after this incident, they'll likely fly off the shelves.

It looks like the blowfish wasn't the only one left with their mouth wide open.

Fortunately, dad got a kick out of it, and in a sense, so did Tiffany, but it was still about as shocking as accidentally stepping on a blow fish at the beach.

This deer looked like it had been caught in the headlights.

This is something that Tiffany and her husband could totally relate to when their daughter walked up to them to ask what some of the words on the pages meant.

When Tiffany posted the hilarious story on Twitter, it practically went viral.

The tweet has been retweeted over 36,000 times and has been liked 96,000 times too. But Tiffany hopes that people can look past the humor and learn to check before buying anything for your kids.

Eventually, other parents started posting their own stories which paralleled Tiffany's situation.

We get that there are a lot of books out there that are meant to be funny, so most adults buy them as a gag gift. But maybe the bookstore should consider warning customers that certain books aren't meant for kids before they buy them.

Until now, Tiffany had never considered inspecting the contents of a children's book.

The book looked so cute that if you just concentrate on the illustrations you'd probably never even realize what your kids will be reading.

The book was apparently bought at Barnes & Noble, according to Tiffany.

From the looks of it, grams assumed it would be something for her 6-year-old granddaughter to read, but you should never judge a book by its cover or its illustrations.
