Overview

À la carte wisdom from the international bestseller Bringing up Bébé

In BRINGING UP BÉBÉ, journalist and mother Pamela Druckerman investigated a society of good sleepers, gourmet eaters, and mostly calm parents. She set out to learn how the French achieve all this, while telling the story of her own young family in Paris. 

BÉBÉ DAY BY DAY distills the lessons of BRINGING UP BÉBÉ into an easy-to-read guide for parents and caregivers. How do you teach your child patience? How do you get him to like broccoli? How do you encourage your baby to sleep through the night? How can you have a child and still have a life?

Alongside these time-tested lessons of French parenting are favorite recipes straight from the menus of the Parisian crèche and winsome drawings by acclaimed French illustrator Margaux Motin. 

Witty, pithy and brimming with common sense, BÉBÉ DAY BY DAY offers a mix of practical tips and guiding principles, to help parents find their own way.

This book helped me to realize that child-training is a journey, not a ten-step process. It also relieved me of my  guilt over using quality childcare to pursue my own interests and talents as well as creating quality "adult" time for  my husband and I after the kids go to bed. In other words, it changed my perspective of how I view my role as a parent. Pamela reaffirms your right as a mother to have a life while continuing to enjoy a close relationship with your children. It is a breath of fresh air in a time when most of the parenting books in the US are  about self-denial and quick-fixes, telling you you're a failure if the methods in their book don't work for you. This  book helps parents in very practical, specific ways to make everyone's life easier. And they work! Thank you Pamela!!!

As a big fan of Druckerman's Bringing Up Bebe, I picked up her latest release the day it came out. Bebe Day by Day is a condensed/bullet point version of her previously released book. If you are looking for a continuation of the humorous anecdotal parenting nonfiction novel Bringing Up Bebe, then you will probably be disappointed. If you want an easy to digest book containing the nitty-gritty of Druckerman's observations of French parenting then this is just the thing for you. I've actually had success getting my husband to read this. I enjoyed revisiting all her nuggets of wisdom as well with a format that helped it to "stick" a little better.

Loved the book and its ideas. Just gives ideas on a different way of parenting without being preachy. Wish I had the book when my children were born. Can't wait to read the sequel, which I've already purchased.
