Overview

Trees Make the Best Mobiles helps new parents (and weary second- or third-time parents) learn to do less, listen more, and spend focused, fruitful time with their children. Practical and fun to read, the book urges parents to treat every task -- even diapering and feeding -- as a chance to connect with their child. The short chapters give calming advice about hot-button issues, from pacifier use to sharing, television viewing to tantrums. Parents will be relieved to find that they don't have to buy lots of stuff -- a tree outside a baby's window can serve as a mobile -- or shuttle kids from one activity to another. The authors believe that being present, without resentment or distraction, is the best present any parent can give.
