Books on toddler development are typically heavy on words, and what photographs they do contain tend to show cute kids, but ones that don't truly relate to the information in the text. Knack Raising Your Toddler is different. Packed with 375 full-color photographs of care essentials, emotions, and stages of growth (12–36 months), it gives busy parents a visually-driven reference filled with general advice, parenting tips, toddler behaviors, and resources in easy-to-understand format.
• 375 full-color photos
• 25 illustrations
• Coauthored by a parenting expert who is an M.S.W.
• Organized by age and stage
