SO MUCH TO LEARN by Gilbert Laue


Email this review


A sentimental paternal view of child care has as its main point of distinction the reversal of accepted roles as Loretto Laue went back to work when young John was five months old, and Gilbert stayed home to write- and rear the baby. All those important incidentals in the bringing up of a first baby and in this case- a fond father- take them through the ritual of diapering and feeding and bathing and training, on the evening excursion to meet Loretto's train and on special trips to the zoo, through the ordeal of visiting relatives, etc. etc. And although Mr. Laue is to be congratulated on his successful novitiate in a woman's world, his account of it is never much more than intimately personal and largely inconsequential.
