5.0 out of 5 stars Bar none best book for new parents in the DC metro July 21, 2009
We were gifted with this book in Dec 2008 after the arrival of our first baby. Thank you thank you Ms. Masterson! I strongly recommend DC Baby (DC Baby, Revised Second Edition) as a shower gift for anyone you know expecting in the Washington, DC area. They will find this book far more useful than a cute outfit (especially an outfit sized 0-3 mo).

After spending hours fruitlessly mining the web and searching through listserv archives for local information prior to our little one's arrival, I was thrilled to find what lay beneath the DC Baby cover. The book is thoughtfully organized, well written and extremely thorough. So thorough that as a busy new mother, I have found myself wondering how the author, a mom herself, found the time to aggregate so much detail on so many baby related things.

Further, it is not just a book of lists but also contains reviews of different programs, schools, stores, etc. This book has helped me - with ease, find so many things e.g. a bilingual Montessori school program, great consignment stores, etc. that I had not located online.

I am sorry that the author appears to be leaving the area and returning to Austin, TX, but I am hopeful she will write a similar book for the Austin metro area as my husband and I are likely to end up there w/in the next few years. We will be first in line to buy such a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have resource for any DC-based parent! July 22, 2009
I got the original book as a gift when I had my first son and it made my life so much easier. This second version was even better. It has up-to-date info that I don't have to research myself. Saves a lot of time now that I have a second son. I cannot recommend this book enough - it pays for itself many times over. I've bought several copies now as baby shower gifts. You cannot go wrong with this gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny! July 23, 2009
By C. Dell
I received this book earlier this year at a shower for my 2nd child. I wish I'd received it earlier 3 years ago for my first child; however, there is still plenty of information for activities and resources for preschoolers on up as well as babies. I will be my new shower gift for every mom in this area from now on. I also plan to use the suggested activities/places when visitors come to DC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book - It's a must have July 21, 2009
By DC Mom
This book has been amazing. I actually bought both editions and also bought multiple copies for all my friends that were expecting. I found the book helpful for so many things and all my friends have raved about all the fun items that I "found" in the book. I think if you live in the DC area, this is a must have book. Thanks so much to Sarah Masterson for writing this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic resource for families July 21, 2009
We moved to the area two years ago and were given this as a gift. What a wonderful resource! It provides great relevant information and reviews of family friendly activities and places. I have gone back to the book when we have been in need of activities and ideas. It's a must have book for DC area families! I wish every city had a great resource like this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Relevant for older kids, too! July 24, 2009
I recently bought my first copy - my son is five years old and its STILL relevant! I carry my copy in my car so I always have it handy, even when I'm on the go. Its been "go-to" resource for finding fun things to do. It would be perfect for a new mom or anyone who's just moved to the area.
