Dallas Morning News, 4/28/09
“[The authors] offer wit, wisdom and whimsy in this lighthearted guide to those all-important nine months…Positive attitude, coupled with the duo’s breezy style give the book it ‘talking to a friend’ flavor. Extensive research, meanwhile, enabled them to pass on scientific insights into everything from bonding with your burgeoning bump to the reasons behind cravings.”

“It's filled fun and quirky details and tips about pregnancy… Basically, it's like a bunch of your best girlfriends got together and wrote you a book. Instead of freaking you out, Postcards makes you smile…Along with being a nice Mother's Day gift for an expectant mom, you should add this to your list of potential baby shower gifts.”

OK, I admit it. I bought it for a friend and, even though I'm not having any more babies, I was curious and read the entire book in two nights. It was a great, fun read and I loved it! I just bought 4 more copies for pregnant friends as I know it'll help them really bond with the baby in their bump and start some great memories. It's the perfect gift for anyone who is pregnant!

This book is a must read for anyone who is pregnant or anticipating getting pregnant (new moms, be forewarned, after this book you might find yourself asking for a do-over). A refreshing blend of humor and truly useful advice, the authors offer wonderful suggestions and anecdotes which encourage you to make the most of your pregnancy rather than simply rush toward the finish line. And anyone can enjoy the fantastic recipes!
