Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Anyone who thinks that raising children in Manhattan is crazy hasn't tried it, but it does take planning. Now in a wholly revised edition (the first appeared in 1998), this work has the great advantage of covering a lot of basics that one might not expect to find in one place. Need a nanny? Then take a look at the chapter titled "In Search of Mary Poppins," which considers everything from checking references to prioritizing your needs before giving an eight-page list of resources and an appendix on such key issues as taxes and using illegal immigrants. Looking for entertainment? Then try "Keeping the Kids Busy and Yourself Sane" (this Manhattan mother's favorites were all there-and then some). Other topics covered include finding a school, finding a doctor, and assuring your child's safety. The author is not just a Manhattan mother but a lawyer, and thankfully she steers her prose away from the cutesy, melding thoughtful advice with well-organized directories (including addresses, phone numbers, and sometimes web sites). Obviously most appropriate for area libraries, where it is well worth the investment.-Barbara Hoffert, "Library Journal" Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
