More About the Author

Feed Me I'm Yours, my first book, began as a local fund raising cookbook in 1974 and turned me into an author. I thought it was the only book I'd ever write and then for a while, I thought that each new book would be my last. Was I wrong!

Along the way I also became a publisher. Feed Me I'm Yours was first published from my husband's and my home on Meadowbrook Lane (i.e., Meadowbrook Press). Our company grew very fast as we learned the publishing business. After our divorce 8 years later, I left Meadowbook Press with no plans of being a publisher again. However, as the books I wrote for others went out of print, I established my own imprint, Book Peddlers, which now publishes over half of my 30 titles...including (naturally) Vicki Lansky's Divorce Book for Parents.

When you write parenting books, everyone glances critically at your children. Thank goodness mine had the good grace to turn out well. Despite my mistakes (and they'll be the first to point them out) my thirty-something twosome have survived and thrived in spite of having had a "professional" mother. Lucky me!

I think my mother would be astonished to know that I give out cleaning and household advice to millions of people as a columnist for Family Circle magazine. After all, she 'not I' had made a career of homemaking. In 1988, when Family Circle asked me to be a contributing editor to their "Help" column, I was delighted. This would be a place for me to share "grown-up" tips. I was now moving beyond the days of needing to know that peanut butter removes gum from children's hair!

Writing about household hints has been more of an education than I ever dreamt. I'm often asked what my favorite tip is. Usually it's the one I've not heard before, which is what keeps my work so interesting. My books on Baking Soda tips and Vinegar tips have sold in the hundreds of thousands copies. Amazing. How lucky I am to be able to share so many helpful ideas...and it is good, clean FUN too.

Recently we have had most of my titles made available in eBook format.

I'm not sure of my next projects as I've decided to cut back a bit on my book life and work a little more on just my life. But I'm never far from my computer and I know there are idea gremlins scrambling around my brain waiting to escape. Stay tuned.....

Format: Paperback
This book has loads of games that parents can use to play with their newborns. Some games are for use during certain practical activities such as a song you can sing while bathing your baby, and pointing out the different parts of the body. There are also games for simply passing the time. Parents usually have time to spend with their young ones and it might as well be entertaining for all! I buy this book for every expecting parent I know!

Format: Paperback
It's a good little book that can definitely help people who had no prior experience in baby handling. As a first time parent, I really appreciate the help!
Vicky Lansky offers a book that is organized by appropriateness for each quarter of baby's first year, and includes wide variety of play activities. Each sector of the book (0-3 mo., 3-6 mo., etc.) is preceded by the summary of developmental milestones.
However, in comparison to Baby Play (Gymboree) by Wendy S., Dr. Masi, Roni Cohen, Dr. Leiderman, this book lacks pictorial support. I have encountered a couple of activities that are not easy to follow just by reading the instructions. A simple picture or a photograph would eliminate this problem.

I originally had this book on loan from the library when my baby was 7 weeks- about the time you start to wonder how you are supposed to fill the hours with your curious little bundle. Anyway, after having used the book so much I went ahead and purchased a copy. Love how it's a small book and the ideas (games/rhymes, etc) are sectioned out by age. Some of the rhymes or activities seem a little odd and ancient, and I wonder about their origin, but I've used enough of the material to make it a worthwhile and recommended purchase for new parents.

Format: Paperback
Here we have a book for the new parent(s), with a collection of games and activities to keep pace with your baby's changing abilities during the first year of life. The author provides a guide to play that will ultimately capture and hold (she says so) your baby's attention. There are traditional and contemporary suggestions suited to tailor-make your changing infant with helpful developmental information in 3 month increments, so you can track those milestones for the memory books.
There are games like bed bouncing (our girls' favorite) to playback, to puppet play and rattles. Then as you move on to airplane baby, clap hands, fancy feet, roll over, peek-a-boo, and all the other neat stuff, plus some really cute words to sleep by and lullabies, and others. A wealth of information for all of us. This author is the best!!!

Format: Paperback
So I'm flipping through the book and thinking "Did I actually pay money for this?". So many of the activities were things that I (and many other parents) are already doing with our babies. Like playing with rattles, talking to your baby while looking in the mirror, kicking at toys, pointing to objects and saying the sounds they make, peek-a-boo, waving bye-bye... you get the idea. But the moment I knew I wanted to get my refund was when in the 0-3 months section, the author suggested going to the hardware store to buy a blank set of keys to put on a strong ring to "make great noise and be cool teethers". The thought of my infant's delicate gums knawing away at the sharp edges of metal keys--YIKES!!

Format: Paperback
After finishing this book I felt sadly indifferent towards it. I didn't feel like I lost my time or money with this book but I didn't feel like I added any great activities to my personal activity database either. Would I recommend it? I guess not. If no activity sticks out in my mind after a fresh reading, I guess it means I won't refer back to it very often and neither will you possibly.
