A lovely British friend let me borrow this when I lived in Miami, and I've thought of it ever since, so I finally bought it on Amazon and read it again. The author has been a nanny for 18 years for various children, Hollywood family's, etc.,and the book is full of cute little songs, poems, and fun anecdotes. It's a jolly, Mary Poppins-type read.

My sister in law gave me this book and she said this is one of her favorite child-rearing books. I agree! Very easy reading and insightful.

I don't know what to expect from this one. I was completely charmed by the illustrations. Yes, I picked it up based almost solely on cute pictures. :)
