Fascinating... gripping... extremely funny... A desperately needed
corrective to received wisdom about child-rearing and what having
children is supposed to do to a woman's sense of self. I loved it.
It made me want to move to Paris * The Sunday Times *
Self-deprecating, witty, informative... But however much she admires "the easy, calm authority" French parents seem to posess, will Druckerman manage it herself? Her efforts to do so add a compelling narrative to this fascinating study of French parenting * Guardian *
Observant, dryly entertaining... In recounting how her three children went native, Druckerman is engagingly self-deprecating... This book is worth its price for the crucial information it reveals about how to win the sleep wars * Daily Mail *
Fascinating and enlightening... Druckerman's observations struck me as Eureka discoveries that could improve interaction between adults and children here * The Lady *
'I couldn't put it down! Smart, funny, provocative, and genuinely eye-opening.' -- Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother
Pamela Druckerman is a charming narrator... she has produced an important guide to staying calm, and if half of what she says about anglophone parents is true, her book should be dispensed on prescription * Spectator *
This witty book will leave you with a few tricks up your sleeve as you embrace the French culture * TES *
Well-written, funny and doesn't take itself too seriously * Irish Sunday Independent *
