Here's what other readers have to say:

"We recommend Nancy Samalin's book, Loving Each One Best, as a useful source of information. I have known Nancy for years and have always found her advice helpful. We have a very similar approach to child-rearing, in which light-heartedness and humor, combined with insight into the child's point of view, carry parent and child through the inevitable rough patches."
--Suzette Burdett, Director of The Village Preschool Center, an early childhood center in NYC

"There's little that drives a household more dramatically than the sibling dynamic-a subject so formidable few have had the courage to tackle it. Nancy Samalin uses her incredible experience in this wonderful book. It should be handed out as required reading as we leave the hospital with number two."
--Dr. Ron Taffel, author of PARENTING BY HEART

"Nancy Samalin has done it again. She has combined wisdom and humor, and a heavy dose of practical advice for those who find themselves dealing with the onslaught of sibling competition."

"Writing with her familiar blend of wit and wisdom, Nancy Samalin has produced a clear, compassionate guide to raising siblings. I learned invaluable strategies for dealing with my own two children."
--Ann Pleshette Murphy, Editor-in-Chief, Parents Magazine
