The Sparknotes for Bringing Up Bébé

Thursday, April 18, 2013

This is the first in a series of posts discussing Pamela Druckerman’s newish book Bébé Day By Day: 100 Keys to French Parenting.  

Pamela Druckerman's timely reaction to the success of Bringing Up Bébé  was to follow that bad boy up with the publication of its Sparknotes.  Bébé Day By Day  is a distilled version that leaves out her personal backstory (I for one genuinely enjoyed the backstory but I can see how others might have wanted her to just get to her practical points).

This book's 140 pages (the pages themselves are only takes an hour to read unless you attack it with a highlighter as I did) were gleaned from the hindsight and constructive commentary that surrounded Bébé N˚1 in 2012.  The result of the distillation is a concise, useful, and practical text.
