Callisto Media. Apr. 2024. 128p. ISBN 9798886508390. pap. $16.99. CHILD REARING
Pediatrician Benaroch’s (Solving Health and Behavioral Problems from Birth Through Preschool) book begins with a guide on how to use it. It’s nicely organized, written in a casual and chatty tone, and divided into three sections: preparing for a baby, caring for a newborn, and knowing what to expect during the first few months of a newborn’s life. This manual sends the message that parents don’t need to strive for perfection. Benaroch offers advice on how coparents can help each other and provides a list of questions that serve as a type of parental check-in. There’s a section about postpartum depression and anxiety, along with many of the possible obstacles that fathers may encounter when they try to balance their family life with their professional life. At the end of each chapter, there are easy-to-implement play ideas and some guidance about the next stage of a baby’s life. The book’s whimsical endpapers depict diapers and sleeping babies.
VERDICT This pediatrician-created title is simple to read and full of must-know information. For all new dads, especially the ones who may feel overwhelmed.
