We like

From major physical milestone to a healthy self-esteem, as parents we have a role to play. Not to mention that it is great fun to have a bit more information when you’re watching your little love monster throwing the sippy cup onto the floor for the 90th time. Occupational therapy Marga Grey offers lots of different ways to interact with your child, other than shrieking “Stop throwing that damn sippy-cup on the floor!” It would be great to work through the book with your partner or a grandparent, so that you all learn the techniques and activities together.

We don’t like
It’s a lot to take in all at once, so the reader should probably look at it bit by bit and try to implement things as they become relevant.
