This is not a book really meant to be read straight through, and I didn't. I read the parts pertinent to my children and their ages. While I didn't like that she kept referring to the reader as luv or dear throughout the book, as it sounds condesending, the book was full of great tips. It helped me get my youngest on a good routine and now we're all sleeping better. I would definitely recommend it to any parent who have children with sleep issues.
