I've bought and read at least 30 parenting books (sleep, getting toddlers to eat veggies, bullying, family meetings - the whole gamut) which means I've invested easily $350 and 250 hours of reading time on parenting books. Because I am at heart a researcher, I don't mind investing this much time and money into parenting books. So if you're like me, you could go ahead and do that too.

Or you could save yourself a slew of time and money and check out Zero to Five. Each page focuses on one specific parenting topic (how babies brains develop, calming a newborn, setting limits with a limitless toddler) in a way that is clear and easy to digest. The layout uses lots of lists and white space so you can get to the key points in just a few minutes. The book is large (don't expect to easily stuff it into a diaper bag) but the spiral-bound format means it lays flat so you could easily read a few pages while (insert: nursing, burping a baby, kid chews on toes nearby, etc.).

Parents of younger kiddos know that free-time is precious (sometimes squeezing in a quick shower is a challenge). If you're looking for practical parenting tips but don't have a lot of time to invest, this is a great resource that hits all the highlights. Oh yeah, and it's a great looking book too (photography, color, and layout are all top notch).

I have a three year old and to be honest, never read a parenting book because the ones I seemed like really long, depressing novels (each chapter is a wall of text of things to worry about.) I just really liked the layout of this: Almost all topics are narrowed and limited to an open pair of pages. This helped eliminate the 'I don't want to overthink / read a phd thesis' factor for me. Lots of nice pictures and sidebars. It's spiral bound, so pages stay open, a nice practical touch.

The content is great too! Simple / By Topic / Research Based. No offense to anyone, but the whole Organic Earth Mother vibe is thankfully absent from this - More about "what does peer reviewed research say?" And even though my child is 3, I'm still getting a lot out of it. I really appreciated the topic of praising your child: Stress the process, hard work, effort, rather than innate qualities of your child (such as 'you are so smart'.) hit home for me.

Anyway, I enjoyed this book. Even though I can't be called a connoisseur of parenting books, I actually read this one, which hopefully says a lot.

As a Marriage & Family Therapist, I'm often asked for a recommendation for a good parenting book -- This is an excellent one. It's science-based, easy to read in a chatty style with great photos. The info starts during pregnancy and goes through age 5. Highly recommend!!

I tried to be a mindful parent, and, determined to do the best I could, read dozens of parenting books. A few of them were actually helpful. Now I am a grandparent, happy to be trusted and able to be with my grandson every day while his parents work. I am again reading a new generation of parenting books, very pleased to find so much now based on actual research.
Zero to Five is my new all-time favorite. Based on science, adjusted for the real world, written in the voice of your best, most supportive friend in an accessible, well-organized format, this is the book I will be giving to new parents and keeping within reach at all times as I help raise my grandson to be the best human being he can be. Tracy Cutchlow has produced a beautiful, unintimidating book packed with practical information to coach and inspire.

I am a pediatrician practicing in Northern California, and I would like to offer my strongest endorsement for Tracy Cutchlow's Zero to Five. I was already familiar with Tracy's work when this book was published, as she had edited John Medina's Brain Rules for Baby, which I customarily have been recommending to all new parents since 2010 when I discovered it. I had the pleasure of meeting Tracy last year and reading Zero to Five. I have since added it to my MUST READ list for parents as well as given it to many of my friends as they have embarked upon parenthood. Zero to Five is baby AND parent friendly, and it is immediately actionable. Tracy's counsel is not only scientifically accurate and interesting, but also nearly verbatim what I do my best to sprinkle into my well child checks during the first months and years of life, in a ready reference, easy to parcel form that can be read in small time chunks and with direct practical application. I am so thankful that she has put together such a useful book for new parents. Her page-long summaries of key points about nutrition, language, sleep, potty, imagination, and so many other key topics in early childhood really do provide a roadmap which, if followed, I truly believe provides the underpinnings of the developmentally rich childhood we would all like to provide for our children in a Cliff Notes version that even the busiest parent has time to read.

This book is AMAZING!!! It's a very easy read and guides you through a whole range of issues when it comes to raising kids. I have worked in childcare for 12 years and now have 2 children of my own. I have done the parent support groups, parent Ed though a co-op preschool and taken many, many, trainings on child development. This book sums up all those classes/lectures/groups into one!!!
