Description

A wise, warm, and witty gift for new (and gently used) parents seeking to raise positive, thoughtful children, this alphabet book brims with the advice only those who've been there can give. From "D is for Dog" (get one) to "P is for Praise" (do it often but appropriately) to "R is for Romance" (keep it alive after the kids come), each mini essay is coupled with a smart, letter-appropriate full-color photograph in these delightfully grown-up ABCs.

Deborah Copaken and Randy Polumbo are the Buddhas of soulful parenting. They've broken it down into easily digestible A-Z concepts which promote kindness, compassion, self-reliance, and love. Plus they're both artists, so the stunning photo illustrations are works of art in and of themselves. This book will teach you to stop hovering and worrying and start letting go and enjoying the ride. I plan on giving it to every new parent I meet.
