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.
