4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Reliable Reference for Parents, February 7, 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Your Baby and Child: From Birth to Age Five (Revised Edition) (Paperback)
Even though Penelope Leach lives in England, her ideas and information feel comfortable to me in a small town in Kansas. Leach has a great understanding and respect for both young children and their parents; she explains many situations from the child's point of view which is extremely helpful. She includes detailed information regarding development, child care, and parenting concerns without talking down to her readers. My only criticism is that a number of topics are a bit too long and dry, but nevertheless interesting, worthwhile information. Leach clearly explains the developmental stages of the first 5 years...newborn, settled baby, older baby, toddler, and young child. I enjoy the photos of real children through out the book. Penelope's positive, common-sense philosophy is very compatible with another one of my favorite parenting guidebooks called "The Pocket Parent." This little book is a quick-read A-Z compendium of sanity saving suggestions to the most challenging behaviors of preschoolers...2's, 3's, 4', and 5's. "Pocket Parent" is loaded with hundreds of practical tips, compassion and humor that serves as an upbeat, easy to read reference book along with the more clinical book, "Your Baby and Child."
