KIRKUS REVIEW

On the general side but nevertheless a practical treatise, done in all good humor and casualness, on how to remain a Glamour Girl for your husband, a delight to your friends and a perfect mother for your child(ren) -- in spite of tiring demands of maternity. How to budget time and money -- how to make traveling and visiting a joy instead of a nightmare, how to start the instilling of good manners and habits -- how to meet sickness with efficiency and calm -- how to train ""mother's helpers"" and servants to lighten your burden -- how to train a husband to be a useful father -- short cuts to preserve your individuality and make an old hand of a new mother...Naturally, this has to be applied to individual cases, but on the whole it is sane and helpful. A good idea book for reading ""before the baby comes"" -- and after. Plus sale with other maternity books.
