Recommended Reading for Parents
Compiled by Katrina Lybbert
This is a list of books I have found useful as a parent of a new baby. I have referred to many of them in preparing this curriculum. I hope you can find many of these books in your local library. If possible, it is a great idea to start reading from these books before your baby is born. Then your baby can receive the most benefit, from the knowledge you gain, right from birth. Feel free to email me with any book suggestions you may have!
