I am reposting this from my blog at wordpress that I recently wrote about the book - it is a brutally honest account of my thoughts about the book, both good and bad.

It is called Loving the Little Years: Motherhood in the Trenches, and was written by Rachel Jankovic. It's the sort of book that is supposed to be encouraging but can be a bit of a bummer in places because it can make you feel like you're not doing enough. I don't usually give in to that feeling since I know I'm doing plenty of parenting over here, and I also like to read things with a little grace knowing that the author doesn't carry things out in the way she recommends all the time either, and these are just the good tidbits of advice she has that she also probably needs to remind herself to follow at times. So in some places this could be a brutally honest review about how I feel about the book, and in others could be trying to sell the book, so bear with me -- or don't, if this isn't the type of book you'd even consider reading :)

A little background - what makes this a "Sunday book" for me is that it is written from a Conservative Christian perspective and backs up its claims with Scripture for me to study and with which to encourage me. So it's a "Christian" book. If this is not your particular bent, I will say that there is some helpful information that non-Christians could glean from it; however, there may be too much "Christianese" in it for your taste. I don't think she was heavy-handed in that realm, but I may just not notice that sort of thing enough anymore.

This book isn't too deep and the chapters are short but that is exactly what you want if you are in the throes of mothering a few babies/toddlers. It's more a book of encouragements and empathies and it helps you look at your situation from a distance and smile at it and appreciate it. The author has a wonderful ability to look on the bright side of everything and see the good in all situations and helps the reader to do the same. A great read for a mother of more than one child, especially if they are little. Would also make a lovely gift for such a person.

Not quite my cup of tea. Very personal, with some helpful thoughts, but I would have loved those thoughts to have been backed up by the bible. I'm also not sure that I found many of the analogies helpful.

I've read this book twice now and have been so grateful each time. It is wonderful at nailing down sin in my life and in the kids' and then pointing to practical remedies to avoid them recurring ALL while keeping things in light of the Gospel. When I first read this book I was really struggling with the daily dying to self that motherhood demands. Now, by God's grace, I am able to rejoice in it.
