    This booked helped a panicking young single mother through the mysteries of her first child and has helped my husband and myself through our second child This is the only book of this nature that I was able to read while being sleep deprived so I would definitely suggest this book to first time or even experienced parents It has lots of need to know and wish I would have known facts in it.

    I love this reference book a great crash course on child development Very approachable, it gives great examples with stories and descriptions A much better alternative to the what to expect series, in my opinion.

    This book came highly recommended to me by a pediatrician almost 5 years ago and I found it to be the most reliable go to guide of those I bought or were given to me Well written, easy to search format, and far superior to the highly over rated What to Expect series.

    I have found myself referring back to this book many times with both kids.
