As a parent you never know when you will need to find that vital piece of information, handy hint or tip that will help you out right now.
Paula Le Flohic, author of Pearls of Wisdom: From Pregnancy to Pre-school knows that better than most.
As a new mother of twins she was living in Dubai, far away from any support network of family and friends. She started a support group for parents of multiples, and began to collect tips and hints to make her life easier.
This collection has now been published so that all parents can benefit from this collection of practical wisdom. Says Paula; “This book is for anyone who is preparing to have their own children or is in the throes of dealing with their young family. Many hints and tips are irrelevant of the quantity of children you’re dealing with, although throughout the book I have highlighted hints and tips which refer specifically to issues that relate to twins or more.”
Living abroad has given the author a lot of experience of travelling with children and the section on travel has an abundance of useful advice on travelling in particular by air.
There is also a very handy section in the back with useful lists to fill in including your child’s medical history, a family week planner, information to give to the babysitter, and a basic shopping list.
With over 1000 tips the book, including a chapter especially for dads, is easy to read and filled with charming illustrations. Of course it would be especially useful for anyone who has or is expecting a multiple birth; however it would make an excellent gift for any newly pregnant friend, a new mother or any parent of young children, as it would be book they will refer to again and again.
