    1,2,3...The Toddler Years: A Practical Guide for Parents and Car

    1,2,3...The Toddler Years: A Practical Guide for Parents and Caregivers delivers on its promise to provide practical instruction for living and learning with young children. Each chapter is beautifully simple with topics ranging from how to handle toddler quarrels to how to help your child handle grief and loss. The scenarios and examples of parents and caregivers will ring true for toddler moms and dads.

    Irene Van der Zande’s 1,2,3…The Toddler Years is a quick, informative read. It can be read start to finish or just chapter by chapter as needed. I would recommend it to a friend.
