About the Book



"Now with Bâebâe day by day: 100 keys to French parenting."



Book Synopsis



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

*This edition also includes Bébé Day by Day: 100 Keys to French Parenting

"On questions of how to live, the French never disappoint. . . . Maybe it all starts with childhood. That is the conclusion that readers may draw from Bringing Up Bébé." --The Wall Street Journal

"I've been a parent now for more than eight years, and--confession--I've never actually made it all the way through a parenting book. But I found Bringing Up Bébé to be irresistible." --Slate

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.



Review Quotes




"Marvelous . . . Like Julia Child, who translated the secrets of French cuisine, Druckerman has investigated and distilled the essentials of French child-rearing. . . . Druckerman provides fascinating details about French sleep training, feeding schedules and family rituals. But her book's real pleasures spring from her funny, self-deprecating stories. Like the principles she examines, Druckerman isn't doctrinaire." --NPR

"Bringing Up Bébé is a must-read for parents who would like their children to eat more than white pasta and chicken fingers." --Fox News

"On questions of how to live, the French never disappoint . . . Maybe it all starts with childhood. That is the conclusion that readers may draw from Bringing Up Bébé." --The Wall Street Journal

"French women don't have little bags of emergency Cheerios spilling all over their Louis Vuitton handbags. They also, Druckerman notes, wear skinny jeans instead of sweatpants. The world arguably needs more kids who don't throw food." --Chicago Tribune

"I've been a parent now for more than eight years, and--confession--I've never actually made it all the way through a parenting book. But I found Bringing Up Bébé to be irresistible." --Slate
