Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Marshall, Phyllis Klaus, and John Kennell, authors of the classic Parent-Infant Bonding (1982, o.p.), do an amazing job with their latest title. The authors discuss the crucial bonding experience and the most important relationship in a child's life-that between parent and child. All bonding situations that take place during pregnancy, birth, and the early months of life are discussed. Studies cited in the book indicate that "well-bonded" babies, and even younger children (up to age seven), have remarkably higher test scores and better academic grades in school and are more successful overall. Must reading for new parents, this title will help to lay a secure basis for future independence of the child. This informative yet easy-to-read book is essential for all libraries.-Marty D. Evensvold, Magnolia P.L., Tex.
