Mother and child book release date
J.K. Rowling - Books, Family & Facts - BiographyReal Simple editors and readers weigh in on the books that have moved them most. That there is actually science—legitimate science! And that things will get better. I am not in a position to be a stay-at-home-mom, nor do I feel that's right for me, so I want to be informed of my rights, what laws protect expectant mothers in different states, and how to handle stigma and bias at work as a parent. Unfortunately, that idea doesn't really fit with our cultural narrative of parenthood, namely that it's the greatest, most wonderful and epic thing you'll ever experience and you'll love your kid from the moment you see that first ultrasound.
You've made it past the pregnancy stage and have successfully created a new human. Now what? If the idea of raising a kid without some guidance seems daunting, these parenting books will get you through the finish line. The same way What to Expect When You're Expecting took a month-by-month look at your changing body, What to Expect the First Year takes a similar approach to your growing baby. You can get a leg up on what behaviors are coming down the pike, what developmental milestones the baby should be hitting, what symptoms are red flags you should bring up to a doctor.
One afternoon last fall , I found myself reading my picture book The Sea Serpent and Me to a group of schoolchildren in the island nation of Grenada. The story is about a little girl who befriends a tiny serpent that falls out of her bathroom faucet. I had thought it would appeal to children who lived by the sea, but as I looked at their uncomprehending faces, I realized how wrong I was. Talk about first-world problems. I think of that kid from time to time when I need to remind myself that my worldview is pretty limited. Novelist Ellen Oh and like-minded literary types responded with a Twitter campaign— WeNeedDiverseBooks—that spawned more than , tweets.
We enter the book strongly planted within these restrictions. We know only what Jack knows, and the drama is immediate, as is our sense of disorientation over why these characters are in this place. Jack seems happily ensconced in a routine that is deeply secure, in a setting where he can see his mother all day, at any moment. She has created a structured, lively regimen for him, including exercise, singing and reading. In a world where the only other companion is his mother, Bed is his friend as much as anything else. Jack, in this way, is a heightened version of a regular kid, bringing boundless wonder and meaning to his every pursuit.
