Publisher's Summary

Pregnancy? Newborn baby? Partway through parenthood with a toddler or preschooler? No matter your stage, I'm guessing you could use more calm, more confidence. You could listen to dozens of parenting books on pregnancy, baby sleep, picky eaters, child psychology, child development, potty training, and discipline. Or you could listen to Zero to Five: 70 Essential Parenting Tips Based on Science.

Journalist Tracy Cutchlow cuts to the chase, summarizing the best parenting research in bite-size chunks. She knows from her own experience with motherhood: New parents are too busy and sleep-deprived.

With the premise that science isn't perfect, but it's the best guide we've got, Zero to Five draws on scientific research and studies from experts such as Dimitri Christakis (screen time), Diana Baumrind (parenting styles), Adele Diamond (neuroscience and executive function), Carol Dweck (growth mind-set), Alison Gopnik (child psychology), John Gottman (marriage and conflict resolution), Megan McClelland (executive function), Patricia Kuhl (language acquisition and brain development), Ellyn Satter (feeding children), Dan Siegel (emotions), Paul Torrance (creative thinking), Grover Whitehurst (literacy and reading comprehension), and more.

Then Cutchlow makes it all understandable, for that two-minute break you've got during the day.

Zero to Five is your quick and easy guide to the best practices in parenting.

Critic Reviews

"The coolest - and easiest - book for new parents." ( Parents Magazine)
"This is a perfect gift for a new parent, as it synthesizes the best information simply and provides encouragement." ( Library Journal)
"Cutchlow advances the reassuring idea that, even when parents make mistakes, 'one bad day isn't going to define your child - or you - forever.'" ( Publishers Weekly)

Exceptional, a confluence of logic and love.

I've found many (but far from all) of these great tips through sometimes exhausting research I've done on my own since around 8 months before our daughter was born to present (she just had her second birthday) and it was incredible to finally find an Author (a celebrated journalist no less) who has been able to organize so many of what I would call "best practices" into one source, and somehow make it all approachable, digestible, and fun. This is the only parenting book I would strongly recommend to every new and expecting parent. (I've listened to the complete Audio Book and read the spiral bound physical copy)

Great listen!

This was very easy to tune into and the advice and tips were insightful and useful. Love that it's research based and not preachy or judgmental.

Awesome science-based parenting book!

This is a great science based parenting book! If you read "Nurture Shock", this book is an awesome addition to your collection. I have read a lot of parenting books and this is top 2! The narration makes the book easy and fun to listen to!
