Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A comprehensive and ambitious book, Parents Magazine's the Best Advice I Ever Got: 1,023 Fast Fixes, Simple Solutions, and Wise Ideas for Raising Kids offers advice on every aspect of child-rearing from birth to the age of eight. Edited by Parents editor-in-chief Sally Lee, this guide counsels parents through breastfeeding, child sickness, separation anxiety, bedtime, toilet training, grooming, games, self-esteem, birthdays and babysitters. Lee also iintroduces useful appendixes of specific organizations for help with adoption, disability, single parenting and a range of other issues. Given this book's relationship to a high-profile magazine, the huge demand for child-rearing advice and a foreword by actor-director Rob Reiner, it is not likely to be ignored. B&w illus.
