While I hate soliciting, I am not selling anything. I simply want to share some resources with those who actually agree with or are considering my opinion on health and childcare topics. I may not be a pro on everything, but I am around those who are, that I hear the same books brought up a lot. And while no wise person agrees with 100% of any book, (No the Bible or the Koran are not exceptions to that rule) I think there are some jems out there that I would like to share with my readers. So in the categories that I am familiar with, I will share both my favorites, and what knowledgeable people in the related fields, as well as Amazon, highly rate.
