This review is from: The Rookie Mom's Handbook: 250 Activities to Do with (and Without!) Your Baby (Paperback)
The good: I really liked the outing suggestions. It's great to have a supportive source telling you to GET OUT OF THE HOUSE! This is great advice for new moms. The crafts are also wonderful.
The bad: While I love the blog that the authors of this book put out, the book itself falls flat. Some of the activities are meant to be lighthearted - but seemed to be about trying to pretend you aren't a parent now, and one activity I even felt was unsafe! Leaving your infant in the car for a nap while you sit outside nearby didn't seem like a great idea to me (from a big city)... There were a few too many 'grown up only' activities for me and I wanted to see more activities WITH my baby.
