Editorial Reviews

Review

"Anyone who deals with infants and young children will want to read 'The Wonder Weeks.' This book will open parents' eyes to aspects of their children's growth, development, changing behavior, and emotional responsiveness that they might otherwise not notice or find puzzling and distressing." Catherine Snow, Ph.D., Shattuck Professor of Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education.

"This is a very practical and entertaining window into the baby's first year and a half. van de Rijt and Plooij have observed and found the vulnerable times in an infant's development that I independently came to in my book Touchpoints (Perseus). The authors' observations and practical suggestions are wonderful." T. Berry Brazelton, M.D., professor emeritus, Harvard Medical School.

“The Wonder Weeks: One of our own personal favorites!” The Bump editors

Featured in AWHONN magazine Healthy Mom & Baby:“Breakthrough science reveals the true reasons of fussiness and weeks of wonders”

“I had no clue about The Wonder Weeks with my first daughter. Having this knowledge now has saved my sanity! Mental leaps aren't always the easiest for both baby and parent, but I'm armed with the tools to help my daughter through these changes, and it helps to quell my mind as to what could be causing her so much fuss. It's normal. “Babyzone, courtesy of Disney

“A must for every parent.” Washington Times

“Finally figured out one phase of the baby's developments to be blind-sided by an entirely new one? This book will get you through those transition times” Examiner.com
