Rating
This newest edition of Penelope Leach s much-loved, trusted, and comprehensive classic an international best seller for twenty-five years, with nearly two million copies sold in America alone encompasses the latest research and thinking on child development and learning, and reflects the realities of today s changing lifestyles. In her authoritative and practical style, Leach responds fully to parents every concern about the psychological, emotional, and physical well-being of their children. She describes, in easy-to-follow stages from birth through starting school, how children develop: what they are doing, experiencing, and feeling. And she tackles both the questions parents often ask What does a new baby s wakefulness or a toddler s tantrum mean? and those that are more difficult: How should new parents time their return to work, choose day care, tell a child about a new baby or an impending divorce? Whatever the concern or question, Your Baby and Child supplies the information, encouragement, and reassurance every parent-to-be or new parent needs."
