    I have 'Your Baby and Child' by Penelope Leech, which I really like. It covers newborns up to about age 5 I think. There is also a toddler book by Robin Barker which I have heard is good, but I haven't read it.

    My favourites are The Science of Parenting by Margot Sunderland, and The Happiest Toddler on the Block (can't remember author atm).

    I haven't read all of it yet but they are raving about it on the ABA website (its the new free gift when you renew your membership!).You can see their feedback here.

    Its so funny all the ABA members want to renew early to get the book LOL

    I have ordered some in, has been a delay with the long weekend so hopefully in the next couple of days. They sold out when we had the last newsletter - everyone must have loved her article

    I just got one with my ABA renewal. My renewal was due one day before the Toddler Tactics offer started but I begged them LOL! I have only just started reading it and so far I love it. I think it's going to be really helpful.

    Ah but Gracie - there's a trick. You can renew your membership at any time, you don't have to wait until it's due. SO, you could always join for 1 year, and then renew for the next year straight away LOL!
