I’ve followed TLC’s ‘The Little Couple’ on and off over the years, basically since it premiered back in 2009 and have enjoyed watching Jennifer Arnold and Bill Klein interact in an average height dominated world. They both strike me as being quite personable, respectful, and loving and what’s nice is that this same charm, determination and strong character comes through in their new book Life is Short (No Pun Intended): Love, Laughter and Learning to Enjoy Every Moment.
Told in alternating chapters written by Jennifer and Bill, this biography/memoir starts from the very moment of their birth, through their childhoods, schooling and careers, their eventual meeting, marriage and starting a family.
What struck me the most is that from the very beginning and through every obstacle and curve ball life could possibly throw at them, Jennifer and Bill persevered with great determination, an awesome support network and an unbelievably unshakable positive attitude. It’s wonderful how they never let their stature or people’s preconceived notions of them and their capabilities stop them from following their dreams and plans for what they envisioned their life could and should be.
Not only is this a wonderfully inspirational book for Little People to read, but it is also a touching, educational and insightful read for anyone going through a challenging or difficult period in their life. Even if you have never watched ‘The Little Couple’, you should give the adorable and bubbly Jennifer and Bill and their equally encouraging and uplifting Life is Short a try.
Thank you to NetGalley and Howard Books for providing me an Advanced Reader Copy in exchange for an honest review.
