Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This is a good, basic introduction for teenage fathers and fathers-to-be. While the easy-to-read chapters are short and illustrated with b/w photographs, the appeal of this title will probably be limited. Chapter headings include: Parenting Starts with Pregnancy, Good Food for Babies and Toddlers, Health and Safety for Your Child, and Guiding Your Child. Individual libraries can best judge whether this book is likely to be of use (and used) by the young men who may need it. The author includes comments by many teenage fathers, which does enhance the appeal of Teen Dads. A brief annotated bibliography and a two-page index are included. Appropriate for school and public libraries, and obviously an excellent choice for special programs for teenage fathers. KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2001, Morning Glory, 223p. illus. bibliog. index., $12.95. Ages 13 to 18. Reviewer: Elizabeth M. Mellett; YA Libn., Brookline P.L., Brookline, MA , November 2001 (Vol. 35, No. 6)
School Library Journal
Gr 8-12-In a positive, straightforward, and easy-to-understand manner, Lindsay provides a wealth of information that will be helpful to anyone facing the responsibility of parenting. Aimed particularly at teenaged males, the text includes advice regarding their role as fathers and their relationships with their baby, the child's mother, and grandparents. Without bias, the author discusses the options of childbirth, adoption, abortion, marriage, cohabitation, and separate lives. To prepare teen dads for each phase of the baby's life before and after its birth, information on child development is provided. Moving forward in time, the text addresses the issue of birth control, safe sex, family planning, and preparing for the infant's future as well as one's own. Later chapters refer readers to other titles from this publisher for more guidance in specific areas. The annotated bibliography lists related books and pamphlets, along with their sources and costs. The book's tone is neither didactic, discouraging, nor condescending, and it's free from unnecessary medical, psychological, or technical jargon.-Dona Weisman, Northeast Texas Library System, Garland
Stephanie Zvirin
Although not specified as part of the Teens Parenting series, this will fit neatly alongside those books on the parenting shelf. There's no intimidation or rebuke in Lindsay's text, which introduces young men to various aspects of parenting--things dads need to know about, but which are usually considered more moms' domain (prenatal care, birth, breastfeeding, etc.), as well as special problems for young fathers, such as maintaining ties when the baby lives somewhere else with its mother. Nothing is covered in much depth, but the encouraging tone and informality of the text make the information easy to assimilate, and the inclusion of comments from teen dads will bring readers closer into the fatherhood fold. Look to Gravelle and Peterson's "Teenage Fathers" (1992) for the really penetrating insights into teenage fatherhood; turn to this book for the practicalities and general good sense it contains.
