Remember way back when I reviewed a book called “The Happiest Toddler on the Block“? If you weren’t with us back then, you won’t recall how I liked the basic premise behind the book and found it had some good pointers, but I felt it was stretched to fill up the pages for a hungry publisher, resulting in overwhelming the parent. When you have a toddler that needs help – ahem – being happy, you probably don’t have time to push through 200 pages of text to figure out whether or not a particular system will work for you and yours. For this very reason, I became intrigued when I heard about Parents Digest.
Parents Digest takes all the latest and greatest of parenting books and crunches it down for you in a very simple easy-on-the-eyes PDF format. You get all the meat of the book without the fluff and fat. If you feel you want to delve in further, you already know the book is worth the bucks. The PDFs are clean and attractive to look at, and if you’re not a totally obsessive reader like me (I can’t even pass the opportunity to read the back of a cereal box), you’ll find their visuals very helpful in grabbing the concepts quickly.
Two books I checked out recently were “Healthy Sleep Habits, Healthy Child” by Marc Weissbluth M.D. and “Louder than Words” by Jenny McCarthy. Both summaries were well done and easy to follow. I was able to get my finger on the pulse of each book and snag the best bits of info. Naturally, I went straight for their Health & Wellbeing section! So many books I’ve been hankering to look into, and now I’ve got the chance. You can too because Parents Digest is giving away a one-year subscription! In the meantime, feel free to try out two free Parents Digest summaries.
