About the Author
Pamela Druckerman is a journalist and the author of five books including Bringing Up Bébé, which has been translated into 31 languages and optioned as a feature film. She wrote the Dress Code column for 1843/The Economist and a monthly column about France for The New York Times, where she won an Emmy and an Overseas Press Club award. Her work has also appeared in The Atlantic, Harper's, The New York Review of Books, and The Wall Street Journal. Her most recent book is There Are No Grown-Ups: A Midlife Coming-of-Age Story.
"Marvelous . . . Like Julia Child, who translated the secrets of French cuisine, Druckerman has investigated and distilled the essentials of French child-rearing. . . . Druckerman provides fascinating details about French sleep training, feeding schedules and family rituals. But her book's real pleasures spring from her funny, self-deprecating stories. Like the principles she examines, Druckerman isn't doctrinaire." --NPR

"Bringing Up Bébé is a must-read for parents who would like their children to eat more than white pasta and chicken fingers." --Fox News

"On questions of how to live, the French never disappoint . . . Maybe it all starts with childhood. That is the conclusion that readers may draw from Bringing Up Bébé." --The Wall Street Journal

"French women don't have little bags of emergency Cheerios spilling all over their Louis Vuitton handbags. They also, Druckerman notes, wear skinny jeans instead of sweatpants. The world arguably needs more kids who don't throw food." --Chicago Tribune

"I've been a parent now for more than eight years, and--confession--I've never actually made it all the way through a parenting book. But I found Bringing Up Bébé to be irresistible." --Slate
