Read

I’m an avid reader.  It’s a huge source of enjoyment, relaxation, and education for me.  Over the last few years I’ve read a lot of books that could be included in a women’s studies program.  I’ve also read a lot of books about parenting (for my use as a nanny as well as my future use as a parent).  Here are some of my favorite reads, with links to something related to the book or author.  I highly encourage supporting your local independent bookstore instead of purchasing books online!

Get Me Out by Randi Hutter Epstein

The Myths of Motherhood by Shari L Thurer

    Ah but you must have this also http://books.google.com/books/about/The_baby_book.html?id=ytjVJ9wANosC it is to motherhood as the bible is to southern baptists. 🙂

  2. I don’t have The Baby Book by Sears yet!
    I have the What to Expect series (pregnancy, first year, toddler years) and I have Heading Home With Your Newborn put out by the American Academy of Pediatrics (which had no commercial involvement in the content). I got all of those from thrift stores for super cheap. I also have two books of recipes for infants and kids that my dad gave me and my mom’s copy of A Child Is Born. But, since I haven’t read them I haven’t posted them up yet! I’ve read the Touchpoints potty training book by Brazelton. Some of it was okay but I wasn’t that big of a fan and I didn’t have a chance to try to implement it before I changed jobs.
