Grab a Copy of the New "What to Expect the Second Year" Book

The newest title from the acclaimed What to Expect series is hot off the press! You can read the press release below and in honor of this new release they are offering a TCDR reader a lovely basket of goodies (enter giveaway below). You can now grab What to Expect the Second Year: From 12 to 24 Months at your favorite retailer or online. I started out reading what is probably their best-selling title What to Expect When You’re Expecting when I was pregnant, continued with the What to Expect in the First Year and I love the familiarity of the page layouts throughout the series and the wealth of information they provide. What a great addition to a fantastic series! 

First steps, First words, First scribbles, First friends
Lightning-speed learning
Insatiable curiosity
By Heidi Murkoff
and Sharon Mazel
Foreword by Mark D. Widome, M.D. M.P.H.
Announcing the arrival of a brand-new member of the What to Expect family: What to Expect the Second Year (Workman Publishing; $15.95; April 5, 2011) by Heidi Murkoff.
The essential sequel to What to Expect the First Year, with 9.8 million copies in print, What to Expect the Second Year picks up the action at baby’s first birthday, and takes parents through what can only be called “the wonder year”—12 jam-packed and jam-smeared months of memorable milestones from first steps to first tantrums.
Walking, talking, picky eating, endless curiosity, bedtime battles, biting, making friends—it’s all covered in a brand-new, easy-to-access, thorough, topic-by-topic format with chapters on growth, feeding, sleeping, learning behaviors of every conceivable kind, discipline, keeping a toddler healthy and safe as he or she takes on the world, and more.
The second year is one of mind-boggling development as a child suddenly becomes his or her own little person on two little feet—with a  mouth-full of words (including “No!” and “Why?”) and a body full of energy.  It’s not surprising it’s also a year of challenges for both toddlers and the parents who love them. Why is my son suddenly rejecting bath time?  Why is this round of teething so much more painful?  Is it too early to introduce the computer?  How can I get a wriggly toddler to sit still in a restaurant?  What are the myths and truths about scheduled immunizations?  How does my child stack up on the growth charts? Heidi answers these questions and more with her signature style, reassuring voice, and practical advice, guiding parents as they learn to decode and fully enjoy the fascinating, maddening, and always adorable person last year’s baby has become.
Incorporating professional guidelines and recommendations, What to Expect the Second Year is filled with solutions, strategies, and plenty of parental pep talks.  Heidi is both a coach and a cheerleader, reminding baffled moms and dads that there is no one best way to approach the second year.
Whatever you do, don’t blink!  The wonder year is here!
