Much controversy surrounds former Wall Street Journal reporter Pamela Druckerman’s 2012 best selling novel “Bringing Up Bebe.” Her observations of Parisian motherhood and how it contrasts to traditional American parenting are fascinating, & at times, unbelievable. On questions of how to live, the French never disappoint.
“Marvelous... Like Julia Child, who translated the secrets of French cuisine, Druckerman has investigated and distilled the essentials of French child-rearing... Druckerman provides fascinating details about French sleep training, feeding schedules & family rituals. But her book's real pleasures spring from her funny, self-deprecating stories. Like the principles she examines, Druckerman isn't doctrinaire.” — NPR
