Good News for Parents - Babies Can Now Come With Instructions - Right in Time for Mother's Day

Margate, FL (PressExposure) April 26, 2011 -- New parents have always been told that babies don't come with instructions. But, thanks to the new book, Fetus to Fifth Grade, now they can. This comprehensive book is a must-read for the new mom, mom-to-be, and even moms of toddlers through 5th grade, making it a perfect gift for Mother's Day.

Let's face it. Parenting can be scary, especially for first-time parents or anyone contemplating parenting for the first time. There's so much to learn, not only about the child's development, but the parent's role in that development. From pregnancy to parenting a teenager, each phase carries with it a different set of issues and emotions. Fetus to Fifth Grade tackles those issues and utilizes the most up-to-date, scientific research on pregnancy and childcare to provide parenting solutions. It's an enjoyable and common sense guide that anyone can use as they plan for their future family, or begin their journey as new parents.

Fetus to Fifth Grade is as much about the role and responsibility of the parent as it is about the day-to-day development of the child. It helps the new parent navigate the many challenges they will face during those first, critical years. The book covers everything from financial planning, weight control during pregnancy, and balancing home and work, to the physiological and emotional aspects of post-partum depression and the reactions to becoming a parent-both positive and negative. The chapters on controlling temper tantrums, the real truth on vaccinations, and the effects of television, and educational DVDs on toddlers are not to be missed.

Fetus to Fifth Grade is the one parenting book that every parent needs and with Mother's Day just around the corner, it makes the perfect gift; one that will continue to give back for years to come.

Fetus to Fifth Grade (ISBN: 978-1-60976-219-3) is available at leading online bookstores including Amazon, as well as the publisher's website where you can also download a free sample of the first three chapters. Wholesalers please email For media interviews contact publicist Diana Ennen at
