Editorial Reviews


Savvy Auntie not only celebrates Aunties, it validates the unique and important role Aunts play in the lives of children who they ADORE. I highly recommend this book...
Rosemarie T. Truglio, Ph.D., VP, Education & Research, Sesame Workshop

What a wonderful gift this book is.... Read this book, embrace it, pass it along: 'Savvy Auntie', like the women it celebrates, is destined to be dearly loved.
Elizabeth Gilbert, bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love and Committed

...celebrates one of the most precious--and heretofore unsung--relationships on the planet. I love this book.
Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician/author of New York Times bestsellers: Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

...in this marvelous celebration of savvy aunties' love for their nieces and nephews, Melanie Notkin shines a much-needed spotlight on a bond that brings so much happiness to so many people.
Gretchen Rubin, Bestselling author of The Happiness Project

... Invaluable...I understand what a gift it is for a child to be loved by...adoring grownups. On behalf of the kids and moms, thank you, SAVVY AUNTIE!
Tori Spelling, Bestselling Author and Actress

From the Back Cover

Savvy Auntie is the first go-to source for taking delight in the Savvy Auntie lifestyle, based on the popular website and written by America's foremost expert on modern Aunthood, Melanie Notkin. Whether she's an Auntie by Relation or Auntie by Choice, a Long-Distance Auntie or a Gay Auntie, America's fastest growing segment of women, the PANK (Professional Aunt No Kids), needs guidance and advice when it comes to the kids she adores. Why should their parents know all the secrets?

Savvy Auntie empowers sophisticated, educated, and independent aunts to connect with their inner-Savvy Auntie by sharing everything she needs to know from the minute she discovers her sister or friend is expecting, to confidently lending a hand with a newborn niece or nephew, to keeping up with the walking, talking growing-oh-so-fast bundles of energy, while coping with the occasional meltdown—including her own. Notkin provides a wealth of essential information and insight on child development, health and well-being, and spending 'QualAuntie' time with nieces and nephews. Plus she shares tips for baby showers, baby booty, birthdays and big kids.

Notkin also addresses the ultimate concern for the modern aunt: to have children or not, and if so, how? She offers savvy advice on living life to the fullest no matter the choice or circumstance. Chock full of sidebars, fun facts, and helpful anecdotes from every day Savvy Aunties, Savvy Auntie is the indispensable handbook for Aunties of all ages, and for every single, married or partnered woman navigating the ultimate celebration of life: children.
