This is a delightful book--readable, easy to understand and implement. I particularly liked the trimester by trimester guide, the positive training instructions, and the interviews with families who have implemented this program. In addition, the illustrations are lovely.

Someone said in the reviews that the 'illustrations are lovely'. I wish the same could be said for information which is cut and paste from the internet. There are other better books out there.
