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 likeā€”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

    Fantastic guide for moms

    A Mom's Ultimate Book of Lists by Michelle LaRowe is the perfect gift for new moms (and pros too!). LaRowe fills the book with over 100 lists starting with getting ready for baby through avoiding burnout as a Mom. I love the lists for pregnancy and birth! Here's the information you need to make a birth plan and make sure you don't take medicine that could hurt your unborn child. Plus baby-proofing and gear new moms shouldn't go anywhere without. The lists for older children are great too: household rules, safety mistakes, recipes. I can't begin to name all of the awesome lists LaRowe has packed into this book. My favorite part however is her updated version of the Proverbs 31 woman. This should be posted on every mom's wall for the hope and encouragement it offers.

    A few thoughts about this book of lists...

    I can't say that I agree 100% with this book (I have some strong reservations), but there's a lot of great stuff in it. Michelle Larowe put together a book of 112 lists of things that are useful for a mom, caregiver, or mom to be of a 0-5 year old. This is a Christian book. There are several lists that are particularly helpful for working moms. But, I think every mom of a young child will find something helpful in this book.

    All that being said, this is a book that you will find yourself agreeing with sometimes and disagreeing with at others. The author is a certified international nanny so she has great ideas for toys and what to do with kids and ideas about teaching sharing. Her list about discipline is a starting point, but not a complete solution. I think all the moms I know would agree that discipline is never a one size fits all kind of thing. I remember thinking when I had one child that I knew what to do--and then my second came along, and then my third... and God humbled me very quickly. Her list makes it sound like discipline is a one size fits all thing and I just don't agree with that. She is approaching this book as a nanny and mother of one child.

    I agreed with her book lists for children and for adults about parenting. I would add one more, though and that is Super Baby Food--this is the best book about what to feed your 0-12 month old and when. My other favorite lists were what to pray for your child before they're born, ten practical Christian principles to teach your Christian preschooler, Age Appropriate Chores for Young Children, and a few others.

    Yet, her list about family friendly movies isn't one I agree with. My oldest child is 6 and I wouldn't be able to show her any of the movies on the list. The themes addressed in the movie Fireproof (a movie she includes in her list) are really for adults--not children and I wouldn't even say for tweens or preteens.

    There is one more thing that I want to mention it in case you do read this book. There is a list entitled "Selecting a Family Friendly Church". I believe that we are all called to go to church and worship the Lord-- and that it is about God, not about us. The questions are supposed to help you decide whether a church is family-friendly. But, is that why you go to church? For what it does for you and your kids? I wish that instead there had been a list of qualities to look for in a church and what to pray for in your search for a church home. Perhaps it could have been a list of open ended questions like...
    1) Do you want to go to a church which practices family worship or one with separate children's church?
    2) What do you feel God is calling you to do in this matter?
    3) Does the congregation have grace for you and for your children?
    4) Will the church love you and your family?
    5) Can you love the people in the church? Will you be able to serve in the church?

    The other thing I'd mention is really just a minor one. She writes this book from an upper-middle class perspective. Most of the time that isn't really important. But, it is relevant to the lists of what you need for your child's first year. It made me chuckle when she wrote "high-quality wipes" as one of the items you need.

    I think this is a great book for checking out of the library, but not for your permanent library.

    Please note that I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book for review.

    I Also Recommend:

    THE BOOK Moms have been waiting for!

    Finally, I waited a year and it's here! Gotta get it, gotta have it, gotta use it.

    Michelle LaRowe is one of the best parenting writers in America. A seasoned nanny and experienced mom, her no-nonsense, honest, practical lists are a must-have for every mom. What books to read, what to pack, what items not to buy when you have a new baby, (that's right Michelle says don't waste your mula) it's all here! I plan to turn some of the lists into templates for our fridge to use with my own family. If you are thinking of one book to buy for a family member who is a mom, this is it. Then buy Nanny to the Rescue also by Michelle, that's the book that introduced me to Michelle LaRowe and I have recommended her parenting tips to moms and friends ever since.
