Author Blurb Kathy Peel, author and founder of Family Manager Inc.
The Mom Book is an excellent resource for every family manager. It's full of practical, tried-and-true information from highly qualified experts ‹moms across America. I highly recommend it.

This is a must have book--a true masterpiece. Moms everywhere are saying 'Thank you Stacy...you are the tip goddess. 'I love this book!!

Author Blurb The Larry Silver Radio Show
As any parent will tell you, there's no more difficult or rewarding job than raising children. And they don't come with bundles of instructions. The Mom Book is the most comprehensive book on child care since Dr. Benjamin Spock put pen to paper.

Author Blurb Jane Seymour, O.B.E.
What an incredible resource, for new and experienced moms! With tips for single mothers, working mothers, mothers of special needs children, and yes, mothers of twins, The Mom Book has something for every mother.

Author Blurb Jennifer Moses, author of Food and Whine
I wish I had had The Mom Book when my own children were young---I would have kept it on my bedside table, right next to Dr. Spock and whatever novel I still hadn't had a chance to read, because who the hell has a chance to read when all you do is nurse and change diapers? But The Mom Book would have provided solace for my soul, as well as practical, upbeat, usable advice not only on all the basics, but also on every other thing I could possibly have conceived of in the motherhood department. It's an indispensable, soup-to-nuts guide for the modern mother, conveyed with the straightforward warmth of your best friend. The Mom Book is so good I'd almost be willing to go for yet one more bundle of joy.

Author Blurb Neale S. Godfrey, author of Mom, Inc. and Money Doesn't Grow on Trees
What a great book! It's chock-full of easy-to-read tips from parents. The book empowers you to learn from moms like you who have been there, done it, and gotten the 'I'm trying to be a supermom' T-shirt. A must for all who are and about to be moms. It's an easy reference book that should be kept on your night table.
