1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it 11 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Having really enjoyed Pamela's first book this one is a complete waste of money. Very dissapointed. Not worth buying. I just found it wasn't enough and of course having read the first book this feels that's its not needed and it wasn't cheap.

3.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive 2 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is great, however if you have read the earlier book "french children don't throw food" I wouldn't bother, as repeats much of the material.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great practical companion 6 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whereas Druckerman's first book, the memoir-style 'French Children Don't Throw Food' was hilarious and informative, this one provides all the practical tips discussed in that book, distilled into one sort of a practical 'manual' that is easy to reference.

I am thoroughly enjoying reading this book as each chapter, or page, is another parenting tip. For a busy Mum, this makes it more than reasonable to read! And the techniques are easy to put into practice. I am enjoying the reciepes too!
