Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
If you have ever wondered where to even start thinking about being pregnant, having babies, raising toddlers or preschoolers, Christian principles to teach, and the like—then this book is for you. This book contains loads of lists and helpful information for all kinds of situations. For example, it gives a list of "Developmental Milestones for the First Year" to be on the lookout for with a baby (helpfully divided into physical, intellectual, social and emotional for the end of three months, six months, and twelve months). Not only does this book provide lists, but it also gives advice for all kinds of situations. For example under the section for "Age-Appropriate Chores for Young Children" it reminds a mother that although "it can be tempting to save time by completing household tasks yourself, resist the urge to do what your child is able to do. Chores teach basic life skills, such as responsibility and task completion, and can help instill a good work ethic in your child. In addition, allowing a child to do things that he is able to do for himself helps build his self-esteem and self-worth." This book is a great resource for any new mother who feels just a touch overwhelmed. Reviewer: Joella Peterson
