A Few Good Books
Caring for Your Baby and Young Child, Birth to Age 5 ~ an essential book for new parents from the AAP. Includes tips about common childhood illnesses. I bought this book when I became a mom at the end of residency--it helped me to learn all the little things you don't necessarily learn as a doctor, but rather 'on the job' as a new parent.
The Feelings Book ~ This book is a companion book to The Care and Keeping of You. "The Feelings Book will help you understand your emotions, and deal with them in positive ways."
I'm still on the lookout for a good book for boys about physical/emotional changes. There are quite a few out there but I don't want to recommend one I haven't read yet. If you have a good suggestion, please contact me on the "contact us" page.
