One of the Best Out There...,
This review is from: Your Baby and Child: From Birth to Age Five (Revised Edition) (Paperback)
This is definitely one of my "Parenting Bibles", so to speak. I've had my copy for many years now, and will actually miss it when my youngest (now 3) turns 6 and I find I no longer really need it...
If that sounds mushy, well....this book has been invaluable to my parenting philosophy. Many, many passages in my book are highlighted. Many of her thoughts I've put into quotes and tacked up on a wall or mirror as a reminder to myself.
This book has taught me so much about understanding my children in the toddler/preschooler stage -- and how to see things from their point of view (which did not come naturally for me!).
I do believe that every expectant mother or parent of a young child should read this book. I guarantee that even if one doesn't agree with everything Ms. Leach says, that something valuable will have been learned...
