4.0 out of 5 stars A big, beautifully presented coffee table book 18 July 2013
By Seren Ade HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This large, impressive-looking tome is sold with the rather grandiose claim that you'll find "unrivalled detail on everything from breast feeding to bonding all provided by a team of experts including paediatricians, midwives, psychologists and nutritionists". The team behind it is impressive, but the level of detail is perhaps not as great as the blurb might lead you to expect.

The book is very much a coffee-table volume. It's well-presented and colourful, with beautiful accompanying pictures. It would make a really nice-looking present and gives a good overview of what new parents can expect in their child's first year of life. It's not by any means a truly comprehensive, in-depth account - but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Instead this book gives a decent enough general account, divided up over the year (with some areas treated in greater detail), to help new parents and raise their awareness of particular issues. The book is written in accessible language and presented in a format that encourages repeated dipping in.

My son is 8 months old now and I still read this book every week! I have since bought another copy for my sister in law as she had a baby not long after me. I would highly recommend this book.

We used the day-by-day pregnancy book and found it an excellent companion for a first time pregnant couple. The baby version seemed like a no-brainer purchase and it has been. A great review of what to expect in terms of growth, behaviour and development, there is enough science to digest and inform but not so much that you need a qualification in biology or psychology to understand it. There is also, crucially, a lack of emotional wording. This is not about someone's opinion, this is not a "how to raise your child" book and it does not assume that you are an idiot. What it does is provide you with the foundation knowledge to help you find your own way and assume that you have the wherewithal to do just that. We like to read a week in advance once a week together, a little ritual that we enjoy and find helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and of high quality. 27 May 2013
By A. Miles VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A surprisingly hefty hardback, as much a quality coffee-table book as a manual, and as comprehensive as you might expect for something that's getting on for 450 pages, with a lot of useful little information boxes spread throughout.

It might not be quite to everyone's taste, there being perhaps something of a surfeit of photos of blissfully happy young families in lovely beige homes and the prose being perhaps a little patronising, but you can't really complain about something of this depth and quality at the price. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars New mother New book 18 May 2013
By Amex Angel VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is an excellent read, the journey of pregnancy and motherhood is clearly set out. It is easy to read and the illustrations are tastefully drawn, the joys and woes of motherhood/parenting has been explored in depth but the information is shared in a concise manner. Like any other manuals e.g. car, t.v. this book outlines the things all new mums need to know. Well worth the buying.
