Well, it looks as though we have a clear winner. The first Ohdeedoh Book Club selection will be (drum roll, please) The Emotional Life of the Toddler by Alicia Lieberman, Ph. D.
For those who want a refresher on what the book is about, here is a brief summary by Simon and Schuster:
Any parent who has followed an active toddler around for a day knows that a child of this age is a whirlwind of explosive, contradictory, and ever-changing emotions.
Many books cover the physical and cognitive abilities of the toddler, but Lieberman's is the first to offer an in-depth examination of the varied and intense emotional life of children from ages one to three...
So what's the next step, you ask?
Now is the time to reserve or check out the book from your local library, borrow a copy from a friend, or purchase a copy as we'll begin discussing the book in about a two weeks. An outline with dates will be posted the week of March 24, and don't worry -- you will not be quizzed, we're just reading this for fun and a bit of conversation.
We hope the book is as promising as it seems to be, and can give a little more insight into the minds of the little people that live with us.
