This is THE ONLY book you will ever need to learn about your baby and child. I found this book to cover from A to Z plus some. It answers so many questions, gives great advice, easy to read and to apply. It also has wonderful sections on how to play with your baby and home made toys that are safe and useful. Penelope has done her research before writing this book! I kept it to pass it on to my daughters even though it is totally dog eared from lots of use.
you will not regret buying this book and is worth every single penny you spend.
