"The new must-read for moms" —Child magazine
“This is perhaps the juiciest, funniest, liveliest read on parenting I've ever seen. A true treasure."
—Denene Miller, Parenting magazine editor and columnist and author of A Love Story
“This is the book Henry David Thoreau would have written if he had been a mother. It is absolutely revolutionary!”
–E. Jean Carroll, author, advice columnist, Elle
“Hanessian’s writing is humorous, wise and real.”
“The most important part of life is Mother and Child. Lu makes this a miraculous time of discovery with love and leadership.”
–Mark Victor Hansen, co-creator, #1 New York Times bestselling series Chicken Soup for the Soul
“Babies cry to communicate, not manipulate. A baby’s cry is a baby’s language in which a baby says ‘something’s not right, please make it right.’ Listen to babies when they are young and they will listen to you when they are older. Let the Baby Drive lets a mother understand how and why to do this.”
–Dr. William Sears, M.D., pediatrician and bestselling author of The Baby Book and The Discipline Book, among others
"Do we dare Let the Baby Drive? Lu Hanessian humorously and sensitively makes it clear why the answer can only be "yes" if we are to become the kind of mother our precious child needs. It's about focusing on the baby for guidance, and then having the courage to trust and act on what we have learned. An important book."
–Marian Tompson, co-founder, La Leche League International
"Let the Baby Drive rings so true! It is a revealing, poignant memoir about paving one's own path in motherhood. Lu walks the reader through her own struggles and challenges and provides a fresh and interesting perspective through every twist and turn. A must-read for new mothers and mothers-to-be!"
–June Cotner, author of Baby Blessings and Mothers and Daughters
“Lu Hanessian’s book LET THE BABY DRIVE is a must-read for all new mothers. At times hilarious and at times deeply touching, it helped me walk through my first few years of motherhood with joy and confidence.”
–Julie Moran, television host, Entertainment Tonight
