By leesa cosentino 18 Feb 2011 4

This is a great book, with general teaching on raising your daughters.
Its writing is simple and sometimes i felt as though the chapter was just an introduction - I wanted more!
Overall this is a great read for someone who has not much of an idea of raising a girl (ie her father), but not perhaps for the avid child rearing book reader.
