“With every page chock-full of plans for how to make one’s home a haven for a youngster’s intellectual and emotional growth, this valuable manual fills a gap on a topic not as frequently addressed in the literature on toddler development.” —Library Journal

Any parent of any toddler will learn so much, AND the book itself is lovely!
That said, I like the way the author refers to the toddler psyche. Toddlers don't have a mean bone in their body, for example. So true. It really has helped me remain so calm when our little toddler begins to have a toddler melt down. These are very few in occurrence and I think the advice this book shares contributes to her well being.
it teaches you the montessori way of doing things at school and it inspires me to use the ideas at home when they are not at school, even if they don't go to a montessori school during the day.
it also has tips for parents towards the back of the book, which i appreciated very much. This book is not just about toddlers but its for the parents of toddlers as well. Every new and current parent can use the insights in this book if they want to have ideas on how to improve or change the way they parent. You really need to have an open mind about it going in or else there's no need.
it has book recommendations too and diff books mentioned throughout the book that has a brief tip on what that book is teaching. which is great because you don't need to be reading all the diff parenting books.
The author's charts in the back of the book are SO helpful! She has an "Instead of this, say that" section as well as a list of suggestions of activities for your child broken down by age. I will frequently be referencing back to both of these charts. I also loved all the books she referenced to throughout her book. The ones I haven't already read sounded so intriguing that I added them to my to-be-read list. Clearly my parenting style is very in line with the author's so I found it easy to love this book.
And finally, the chapter on "Putting it into Practice" was a gold mine. The author tackles subjects like feeding, sleeping, toileting, pacifiers, siblings, brushing teeth, getting dressed, sharing, hiting, biting, throwing, clingy stages, screen time, and even how to help build skills for an introverted toddler. There were times when I wanted more from the author on a specific topic, but in those times she generally referenced further reading which works well for me since I enjoy reading. She gives such a great over-view of each topic!
All in all, this book is excellent! I would highly recommend it for any parent or caregiver of toddlers.
