I first bought this book thirty-six years ago when my son was born. It was my bible. Now I am giving it to my daughter-in-law who just had her first baby and will soon give another copy to my daughter for her first child. The book contains a wealth of valuable "common sense" information as well as a great synopsis of how a child develops each month during that critical first year. While I personally liked the original format (over-sized paperback), the new, updated version is packed with easy to understand info. The index is a big help in finding information on specific topics quickly while the charts at the end of each chapter help in tracking your own childs developement.Was this review helpful?

Someone gave me this book 30 years ago when I was pregnant with my son. Now he is having my first grandchild and I'm giving it to him. It is a great reference for growth and development in the first year. Doesn't preach any form of child rearing. A fun way to follow your baby's amazing year one!Was this review helpful?

I received a hand-me-down, older version of this book prior to the birth of my daughter. This book is a map for the journey you and your child will undertake in his/her development. This is not a 'parenting' book, nor does it approach the subject of children with special needs. It is a reference book on early child development. I knew nothing about child development prior. I read each chapter in anticipation of my daughter's next milestone. This book gives me the ability to understand and anticipate her growth with the foresight from leading experts. I apreciate the breakdown into motor, language, mental, and social. Although it is set up month by month, it is really a progression. Easy(interesting)to read, in-depth but not tedious. I am surprised at the very affordable price of this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
