From America’s bestselling parenting series, What To Expect, comes a new book that is geared specifically toward your toddler. What To Expect The Second Year is a complete why, when and how-to guide to your toddler’s wonder year (from 12 to 24 months). It features everything you need to know about caring for, nurturing, understand and keeping up with your incredible 1-year old. What To Expect The Second Year covers everything parents need to understand and enjoy in this important year in a child’s life.
When I was pregnant with Princess P, I read What To Expect When You’re Expecting from cover to cover. I just loved everything the book featured and how well organized it was. So, it’s no wonder that when I received What To Expect The Second Year, I found the same thing.
What To Expect The Second Year features 15 chapters on everything toddler. From traveling with your toddler to playing and making friends, this book covers it all. I love how well laid out this book is and I really enjoyed “The Second Year at a Glance”, which highlights your little one’s development in a timeline.
Taken from Chapter 9: Learning, this is a excerpt on how to help your toddler foster a love of reading.
“Be Creative. You know what interests your toddler better than any author does. So if your child seems confused or frustrated by the language, don’t feel obliged to read the words as written. Doing a little creative editing can greatly enhance your toddler’s comprehension and interest level.”
What To Expect The Second Year is a great resource for common things like “When to call the doctor?” and “Up and down appetites”. But it is also great at helping parents tame their toddlers aggression and teaching them how to discipline effectively. I have found this book to be very educational and it has also helped me gain insight into a toddler’s world.
