The runaway New York Times bestseller that shows American parents the secrets behind France's amazingly well-behaved children.

When American journalist Pamela Druckerman had a baby in Paris, she didn't aspire to become a "French parent." But she noticed that French children slept through the night by two or three months old. They ate braised leeks. They played by themselves while their parents sipped coffee. And yet French kids were still boisterous, curious, and creative. Why? How?  With a notebook stashed in her diaper bag, Druckerman set out to investigate—and wound up sparking a national debate on parenting. Researched over three years and written in her warm, funny voice, Bringing Up Bébé is deeply wise, charmingly told, and destined to become a classic resource for American parents.

    " I had to see what all the hype was about. While there were some excellent points alluding to the way the American culture of parenting has become addicted to trendiness, I found the point of view to be rather naive. It was as if she had never known another parent in her entire life until she became pregnant. "

    " Oftentimes too repetitive, but otherwise an interesting and enjoyable non-fiction read for a Francophile with an interest in kids! "

    " Ten stars. A must read for parents of any aged children really. I wish I had read this when my boys were babies to learn "le pause" and other helpful hints - yet it's not a how to parenting guide. It is an intellectual observation into French parenting vs American. "

    " Thanks Pamela, i am certain i will bring my future kids up the French way! "
