I loved this book when my children were little. It pleased me no end to see that, not only is it still in print, but has been updated. I sent it my daughter and d-in-law who are now raising our grandkids. It's full of good ideas and very practical advice without preachiness.

This book is THE one I consulted when parenting our children, beginning in 1976. I am now re-consulting for reminders as a grandmother! The parent-authors are down-to-earth and use their own experiences and that of their friends to offer no-nonsense advice and suggestions on the simplest to more complicated questions and concerns. For children birth to seven years or older, the authors give ideas on crafts, traveling and almost anything for which a parent might need a bit of practical knowledge. I give this book to moms-to-be at showers or for other gifts. It's the best! Thank you again, Marguerite and Elia! Susan T. Brotherman

I used this book raising my kids and now get it for all baby showers I go to. One shower was for the Dad so got him The Father's Almanac. It is great!

I used this book as an aid when my children were babies and toddlers and passed it along in my circle of friends. Somehow I ended up never getting it back, but it was invaluable and hope to be purchasing it in a year or two for my daughter, when she becomes a mother

Given to me by a relative who parented with it in the 70's. The book has not aged. Just the right description of your and your kids' needs and concrete suggestions for your recreation and development and theirs.
