  Library Journal Review

Lack of sleep is undoubtedly the most frustrating part of being a new parent, and if any subject in the child-rearing literature is oversaturated, it is sleep. Recommended techniques range from no crying, to some crying, to wailing one's heart out; there must be as many varieties of sleep training as there are chicken-casserole recipes. Nonetheless, the veritable American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) here offers parents a concise and reassuring guide to infant and childhood sleep, addressing such topics as sleep cycles, safety concerns, night waking, and night terrors, as well as how conditions such as allergies and ADHD affect sleep. VERDICT Unlike many sleep training books, which outline schedules, routines, and the logistics of napping, the AAP's title takes a more general approach, painting sleep issues in broad strokes across the canvas of normal child development. Frenzied parents who want to know exactly what to do are more likely to find help from pediatrician and author Marc Weissbluth, but not-yet-desperate parents with big-picture outlooks will be comforted. Because of the esteemed credentials of the AAP, libraries should consider this essential. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
