A Child’s Way is a beautiful, artistic lovesong and guide to parenting at the speed of a child. That is to say, slowly, as if every new thing was a universe in and of itself, which, of course, it is to our little ones. This is one of the finest books you could give a new parent, and one of the most useful you could give to yourself if you are that parent.
The beauty of this book, the rhapsody of its message might make you expect that it is the sort that will make you feel really good (which is, of course, useful), but won’t really give you the solid information you might be seeking. The good news is that there is as much guidance and practical suggestions as there is beauty between its covers. You’ll find suggestions for daily rhythms, activity suggestions and lots and lots of practical tips for warm and healthy childrearing.
This is a wonderful book.
