I was pleased to be approached by Gail Cornwall (gailcornwall.com) for a review copy of Joyful Toddlers & Preschoolers: Create A Life that You and Your Child Both Love. Gail is a freelancer for The Atlantic, The Washington Post, Salon, The New York Times, among others. She also writes parenting articles for Scary Mommy, Parenting Magazine, and more.
After a nail-biting wait, I’m thrilled to report that Gail gave the book a glowing review, calling it “one of the very best books on parenting” for this age group. Although her kids have moved beyond the toddler/preschooler stage, she reports that “SMILE doesn’t just work with toddlers. My eight-year-old can throw some serious shade when reminded that dirty clothes are expected to find their way to the hamper, but when I make like Demi Lovato and sing, ‘Baby, put your so-cks … in the laun-dry,’ the eye roll I get comes with a grin and a clean floor.”
“There’s no question Joyful Toddlers & Preschoolers is one of the very best books on parenting kids who aren’t babies anymore but haven’t yet hit the tween years.” -Golden Gate Mothers Group Magazine
