I bought this book to find out what to expect from my daughter as a single dad who doesn't have the female advantage of babysitting expierience. Many helpful tips, the baseline is: take it easy but plan ahead, combined with lot's of practical tips and tricks how to do it, what to say to other people, even with a few cooking reciepies. My daughter (1 year 10 months) also loves the book, and can spend hours looking at the pictures. After I bought it she stoped crying when I left her at daycare, started to pottytrain and puts her shoes on herself.
"This extraordinary book is a wonderful resource for all adults who have children in their lives. If I had to pick just one book to give to new parents, this would be it." Wendy Martyna, Psychologist and Educator University of California
