Bringing up bébé : one American mother discovers the wisdom of French parenting
When former Wall Street Journal reporter Pamela Druckerman moves to Paris with her husband and child, she is fascinated by the way French children behave.

Some of the French ways for bringing up baby are scientific and others are cultural. A fresh look at child-rearing with some old-fashioned common sense that could result in less stress and more contentment for parents and children.
