Perfect gift for a new parent!
I love this book for it's simplicity and thoroughness - if that makes any sense! Dr K. touches on just about every subject a new parent would need to know from birth through the difficult teen years. I especially love the medical portions. It's much nicer to see a clear picture and have clear directions on how to treat something from a trusted doctor than running off to Google (!!) or to my child's own doctor with every little ailment.
I'll be giving the book to all my new-parent friends and telling them to ignore the other parenting books!
