4 Brazelton, T Berry ON BECOMING A FAMILY
Bantam Doubleday Dell 1982 0440567122 / 9780440567127 Paperback Near Fine 
The passionate attachment between parents and babies, as well as the inevit able anxieties, begin well before birth. Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, whom Time calls "the nation's preeminent baby doctor" shows how this turmoil prepares parents for the arrival of the child and how to survive and enjoy those im portant early months when a new relationship begins and a new family is bor n. As the cornerstone of his classic trilogy, which continues with Infants And Mothers and Toddlers and Parents, this revised an up-to-date edition of On Becoming A Family supports parents through pregnancy, birth, and the first few months. Dr. Brazelton examines the great adjustments parents must make in their relationships with each other and with the new baby; the gradual (not instant) process of bonding; the normal competitions between parents and caregivers; and the effects on all this of Caesarean section, premature birth, single parenthood, and a child born with a potential disability. This edition also includes astounding new insight into the abilities of the newborn, and an entirely new chapter on attachment in adoptive families.

11 Coles, Gerald THE LEARNING MYSTIQUE : A CRITICAL LOOK AT "LEARNING DISABILITIES"
Ballantine Books 1989 0449903516 / 9780449903513 Paperback Very Good 
The author argues against today's dominant theory that learning disabilitie s are caused by neurological deficits. He explains the development of this paradigm as the response of our educational system to post-war social and e conomic trends. Coles first examines the history of dyslexia research, find ing most of it to be inconclusive. He then presents a new model of learning problems, in which family and school environments are the major determinan ts of academic success. In this "interactive" paradigm, the attitudes and m ethods of education are more important than inherent strengths or deficits of the individual child. This book prompts us to reexamine some of our educ ational system's basic assumptions.

18 Eisenberg, Arlene WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING
Workman Publishing Company 1996 089480829X / 9780894808296 Paperback Very Good 
A clean softcover, no markings throughout: This traditional, popular guide to pregnancy covers every possible aspect of the prenatal period: pregnancy tests; choosing a caregiver; month-by-month fetal development; eating correctly; sex during pregnancy; common illness symptoms; and childbirth options, including cesarean section and pain medications. The authors also provide a healthful approach to prenatal nutrition, though some women may find it hard to consistently meet their high standards. They use a reassuring and informative tone to describe and answer common concerns and not-so-common problems, and the month-by-month format is particularly clear and helpful. While What to Expect When You're Expecting is an excellent overall guide, parents-to-be interested in a less physician-centered approach are advised to use it in conjunction with other pregnancy resources, such as The Pregnancy Book by William and Martha Sears.

19 Elkind, David ALL GROWN UP AND NO PLACE TO GO: TEENAGERS IN CRISIS
Perseus Books Group 1997 0201483858 / 9780201483857 Paperback Near Fine 
All Grown Up and No Place to Go spotlights the pressures on teenagers to gr ow up quickly. The resulting problems range from common alienation to self- destructive behavior. Quoting teenagers themselves, Elkind shows why adoles cence is a time of "thinking in a new key," and how young people need this time to get used to the social and emotional changes their new thinking bri ngs. Many of his ideas, such as the "imaginary audience" that makes teens s o self-conscious, have become seminal in adolescent psychology. In this tho roughly revised edition, Elkind also explores the "post-modern family" in w hich teenagers are growing up. He helps parents and those who work with you th understand teens in crucial ways, because the root of so many adolescent frictions is the gap between what teenagers need and what our culture prov ides.
