This week the library received a new book that will interest parents of babies and young children - Grow Healthy. Grow Happy. The Whole Baby Guide by Becky Cannon.

This book is a comprehensive resource for parents wanting to raise their children in a holistic natural way. The author has degrees Child Development and Education. She studied the traditional Japanese methods of natural living and has incorporated them into her manner of raising healthy and happy children. She focuses on blending eastern and western cultures in order to provide children the best possible environment in which to grow and thrive.

The book contains a great deal about natural food choices to benefit the child’s physical development, but is also delves into all other aspects of child rearing. There are sections providing information on environmentally friendly products like diapers and toys.
