Library Journal recommended Is This a Phase? for all public libraries. Offers concise descriptions and dozens of charts and graphs that make it quick and easy to use for both fathers and mothers to understand what to expect at every developmental stage between birth and age 6. It walks parents and caregivers through three dozen topics common in the first six years of life: everything from attention span and impulse control to death, divorce, and the red flags that signal reading readiness issues.
