Reviews

  • Fascinating... gripping... extremely funny... A desperately needed corrective to received wisdom about child-rearing and what having children is supposed to do to a woman's sense of self. I loved it. It made me want to move to Paris

    The Sunday Times
  • Self-deprecating, witty, informative... But however much she admires "the easy, calm authority" French parents seem to posess, will Druckerman manage it herself? Her efforts to do so add a compelling narrative to this fascinating study of French parenting

    Guardian
  • Observant, dryly entertaining... In recounting how her three children went native, Druckerman is engagingly self-deprecating... This book is worth its price for the crucial information it reveals about how to win the sleep wars

    Daily Mail
  • Fascinating and enlightening... Druckerman's observations struck me as Eureka discoveries that could improve interaction between adults and children here

    The Lady
  • 'I couldn't put it down! Smart, funny, provocative, and genuinely eye-opening.'

    Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother
  • Pamela Druckerman is a charming narrator... she has produced an important guide to staying calm, and if half of what she says about anglophone parents is true, her book should be dispensed on prescription

    Spectator
  • This witty book will leave you with a few tricks up your sleeve as you embrace the French culture

    TES
  • Well-written, funny and doesn't take itself too seriously

    Irish Sunday Independent
