May Book Reviews (part 2 of 2)

Nurture Shock - Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman

The purpose of this book is to explain why many of our most commonly used parenting strategies are backfiring. Using extensive research, the authors cover a wide variety of topics. The writing style is conversational and friendly. I listened to this book on CD, which I highly recommend. The chapters include: Praise, Sleep, Teaching kids about race, Lying, Gifted Testing, Sibling Rivalry, Self Control, Peer Relations, and Early language development.

Baby Giggles - Rachel Hale
We checked out this cute little board book from the library and it is now one of Ethan's favorites. Like most babies, he likes looking at picture of other babies. The pictures are adorable and cover babies with different emotions and situations.
