    Replacing my un-returned 1990 copy

    I am so gald I found this book! This book was so readable and easy to reference in 1990. I lent it out to a neighbor who moved 6 years ago. I want this book, always, on my shelf! This book is a calm, gentle, practical, and reasonable discussion about our child's developement and health. It has simple, intuitive suggestions for care and enrichment. It is not sensational, judgemental, and extravagant like so much of AMERICAN society and baby care literature.

    I bought this book when I was pregnant with my daughter. Now, 28

    I bought this book when I was pregnant with my daughter. Now, 28 years later, she is pregnant. My first 'pregnancy gift' to her will be this book. My confidence in Penelope Leach couldn't be greater. This book carried me calmly through pregnancy, my daughter's infancy, and her early childhood knowing that I had an expert at my side. Time only reminds me what a gift it was.

    Book is such a help, even with little things like play, sometime

    Book is such a help, even with little things like play, sometimes we forget how to play with all the new toys. Goes through all the ages and reactions to others, play, nail biting I have given this book to every baby shower I have been to since receiving a copy with my first child. The Encyclopedia/Index alone is worth the purchase. Truly brings you through your baby to child age 5. I'm here yet again to purchase this for a new Mother.

    The best in years - for all new mothers!

    I would recommend this book for all mothers - whether it's your first, second or third time around. Very informative and answers almost all questions you can think of. Would buy this book again.
