This book is so beautiful. I read if before we had our baby and my husband and I have reread it several times over the last few years, gaining more every time. It teaches us how to gently interact with, listen to, and form cherished bonds with a child from the day they are born. I can say with confidence that the lessons truly "work" and we see the evidence over and over again.
We have purchased more copies as gifts. If I could recommend only one book for any parent of a baby or or youngish child, or parent to be, this book is IT. I recently got rid of a ton of baby and parenting books but you'll never take this one from me!
(Runners up would be Simplicity Parenting by Kim John Payne and Unconditional Parenting by Alfie Kohn, if anyone interested in books in a similar vein but different focus. Also a great bibliography in this book with several more suggestions)
