Book Recommendation

I cringe at most parenting books. To me, they come off preach-y, too obvious, or just plain hokey. One book that I can recommend whole-heartedly is Becoming the Parent You Want to Be. As a mom with a little one still in diapers, I especially appreciated the section on "toilet learning" (as opposed to toilet training.) It's one of those rare books that has specific practical advice as well as a "wisdom for the ages" appeal. Parenting, after all, is as much an art as it is a science, and this book speaks to both sides of the brain. It's the one parenting book that I could see myself re-visiting time and again.
