Book Review: Wildflower, Drew Barrymore


This collection of autobiographical stories by Drew Barrymore definitely qualifies as a travel book.  She has traveled around the world, literally, more than once.  Drew Barrymore seems to use every major experience in her life as a teaching/learning experience.  One of my favorite of her frequent phrases is: “my heart grew.”

This is not a Hollywood gossip bio.  Each chapter explains one area of Drew’s growth to become an adult and a mother.  She keeps lifelong friends and adores her in-laws.  But, here I was, reading in this book how important family is, and the next day, she and her husband announced their divorce.  Another teaching/learning experience?  I hope so.

My favorite part of Drew’s life experience was how her messed up childhood gave her a blueprint of how not to be a parent.  She certainly presents a wonderful picture of happy mothering.
