As I have reviewed a book last week on raising kids outside of gender stereotypes and have received the Chicken Soup for the Mother and Daughter Soul, I had to review Chicken Soup for the Mother and Son Soul as this week’s book as it is my last one being pregnant before finding out I’d our baby is a son or daughter.
As someone who is Team Green till my baby is born, the one question I can not answer is the most popular for people to ask me, is our child in utero a boy or a girl. As I wait to learn the answer to this, I’ve thought a lot about gender and expectations, so I eagerly chose “Parenting Beyond Pink & Blue” as this week’s book review.
I decided to not follow the old saying of not judging a book by its over when I used the cover to choose this book for today’s review. As I’ve mentioned before our local dollar store has a great collection of eclectic books and this one promising a mystery with a pregnant heroine was one I was eager to get into.
Today I’m reviewing the booklet, Your Guide to Breastfeeding from WomensHeath.gov, which was recommended to me by a Lactation Consultant at the BABI expo.
Sometimes the serendipity in life cracks me up. I was looking for just the right book to review for this week, when I noticed a discussion in one of my many Facebook Mom to Be Groups that mentioned how baby books tend to be very mom focused. A few days later I received such a book in my Bluum box, which arrived yesterday just in time for me to have this to review for today. So, as it’s the newest book to find its way to me, here is a review of with Love from Mom.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of many great books I received at my baby shower. Matt told me it was one of his favorite books as a child, so I decided it would be a great book to start off my post shower book reviews.
After a few days of lots of heat and running around to do chores and errands, I wanted to choose a very light reading choice for my book review. Years ago a beautiful black cat who I named Inky walked into my life and changed it forever, inspiring my choice of “A Taste of Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover’s Soul”.
