Recommends it for: Mothers and mothers-to-be
This is more of a reference book - that I can hardly leave on the shelf it is so helpful! This is probably the book my mom would have written had she written the book I have asked her to write. Very practical and simply comprehensive.

I CANNOT say enough about this book. The more kids I have the MORE I realize she really knows what she is talking about. Bless her for sharing this.

I would totally give this book to my daughter when she becomes a mom with maybe some side notes that I might add from

This is the book I love to read while I am running. It's very easy reading...kind of the "Oh yea! I knew that!" It contains practical advice and ideas for mom's with children of any age. Her humor and approach to the subject makes you feel like you can do the tasks of motherhood and do them well.

I didn't actually read the book from beginning to end. It's a reference-type book and I skimmed through looking for things that relate to my children's ages. The author is knowledgeable and the book is written with a comforting humor. She covers everything from pregnancy and potty training to planning birthday parties and dealing with puberty. Thorough and easy to read.

So far it is a lot of stuff I already know, but I expected that since I have 5 kids and been married 13 years! There is some useful info even for old timers like me! I would definitlely recomend it to newly weds.

I love this book. It's listening to your grandmother's parenting advice. I have found it very comforting and refer to it every now and then when I need some good ideas. She covers every topic you can think of.

This was one of my favorite books when I was a new mom. Full of good information in one place. Not necessarily my goto for everything, but a good resource for ideas.

Plus it has one of my favorite quotes.

Great book with practical and validating advice on parenting---mothering especially. Great Quotes and poems and suggestions for entertaining, teaching, and caring for children. I love this book and turn to it often for suggestions on how I can better fulfill my role as a mother.

This book has such great ideas for such topics as disciplining (with love), FHE for younger children, etc. It's great. I need to read it more often to keep it on my mind.

I love her down-to-earth mothering. She focuses on what's important and helps you let go of everything else. She's actually my husband's cousin's mother-in-law!

I've read most of this and keep re-reading parts. It has a lot of great ideas for moms and a ton of uplifting thoughts about motherhood- which I seem to need a lot. I recommend it!

Shelves: nonfiction
This book is very comprehensive, covering all ages and stages, if not a little predictable. I learned very little, but I still use it occasionally.

This lady was very down-to-earth in her writing style. I enjoyed the book. There were good ideas on teaching your children, relevant to all stages of life.
A good resource, reminder, stress-easer to parenting...
