When kids come along there's a whole new set of career skills to learn - overnight! Parents are told that the early years are the most important, with children learning all the time. Young ones need heaps of stimulation, and to keep boredom at bay, all parents, and particularly mums, need to be armed with ideas for new toys and games, tasty treats, places to go and exciting things to do at home. Mum's the Word lifts the lid on a box of inspiration for just about every occasion in a busy family life. Designed to dip in and out of, rather than to be read from cover to cover, this book includes sections on play, food, travel, health and home-time. With practical advice and useful tips, it's inventive, educational and often just plain fun. It's the perfect book for Mums and their toddlers.
