KIRKUS REVIEW

And Carol Bartholomew is more so than most since she's got a whole string of youngsters, six boys at any rate, and this one's all about what Shakespeare called ""the pleasing punishment that women bear."" It's written for other mothers in the hope that they will be less frazzled and frenetic and it's pleasantly semi-serious; about food, from the family dinner to dining out; sleep; disaster areas; bathroom behavior (""I do not know one single adult who is not housebroken""); fighting; discipline; schools and after--Cub Scouts and Little League; teen agers; etc. None of this is, or is intended to be, more than supplementary but all of it is likeable and identifiable home management; for anything beyond that-- try Eda Leshan's How To Survive Parenthood (Random House-1965).
