Nanny in a Book

The Common-Sense Guide to Childcare


The English nanny is an institution. The image of the smartly uniformed, traditional nanny features in many books and films and there is something rather comforting about the idea of a 'no nonsense', nurturing and sensible childcare expert looking after your family.

For over a century, Norland Nannies have cared for royal and celebrity families and are the best, most respected nannies in the world. Now their clear advice and straightforward methods - tried and tested on thousands of families - are brought together for the first time.

Nanny in a Book is a practical companion to childcare that will help you with:
* Setting up your nursery * Sleeping, weaning and potty training * Teaching your child good manners and behaviour * Nursing common ailments from sore tummies to measles * Organising a fabulous birthday party.

Full of Nanny's top tips and personal stories, Nanny in a Book will become a trusted guide and a treasured companion - the next best thing to Mary Poppins herself sweeping in on the East wind and turning up on your doorstep.


  • A clear and wonderful guide, whether you are a first-time mum or just looking for reassurance.
