To me there’s no reason to skip ahead to what a 2 year old is doing when I have a 17mo so I read it in sections & the book is designed just for that. You can read whatever you’re looking for regarding that age period and then come back once your child has aged.
It gives you developmental milestones to look for, tips and just interesting tidbits of information. While I have a book designed for “moms” I find myself going to this one simply because it’s easy to get the information where I need it.
Both me and my husband find this to be a great resource as we have zero idea what we’re doing. ;)
As a reference book, he found it insightful and extensive. There are some issues that he is experiencing now with his toddler so he liked that it helped explained why his son was doing some of things he was doing and the advice on how to handle it. He really liked the advice on financial planning because it can get so involved that it is easy to set aside for 'later' and suddenly later is now. The thing he appreciated most was that it covered a wide range of topics and scenarios. Perhaps some won't apply to him (ex: Deployment because he's not in the military) but he likes that it is there.
In his opinion, it is a good guide to have in the house. As noted, perhaps not everything will be pertinent but you never know when it might be.
They’re in the talking-about-it stage & he’s a researcher who totally appreciates the ability to zero in on a situation or question or age - whatever issue you’re wondering about or question you need answered is easy to find.
The pages have an appealing layout, mixing lists & bullet points & eye-catching graphics with an occasional cartoon while maintaining its novel-type format.
The ages of 1-3 years are so full of nonstop changes & challenges & this book is a great reference source geared to dads, much like the What To Expect When You’re Expecting series was for moms when I was having kids.
My husband picked it up & wondered aloud why there wasn’t this around back in his day!
But, thankfully, there is now for our son.
(Thanks for reading this & hope it’s Helpful!)
All in all... a great resource.
