Children's Literature - Bruce Adelson
Baby on the way? Or are you the proud father of a newborn? If either or both are true, this book is for you. An easy-to-read reference source, it is filled with fascinating information about children from ages 1 to 3 years old. This helpful, well-devised book will assist even the most anxious fathers. It is laid out in 8 chapters, each devoted to the child's specific age, such as 12-15 months, 18-21months, etc., and the changes that take place during each period. Reading scary stories, toilet training, sibling rivalry, and much more are included in this book. Also, sprinkled throughout this title are entertaining cartoons about child rearing and advice from child psychologists and other specialists. Not only does the author discuss changes in the child, but he also delves into changes for the new parents, such as different expectations for each other, money matters, and the new sexual relationship. An excellent addition to your library's parenting collection.
