Abby Craden's intelligent narration invites listeners hear about child-rearing in France. Her deeper-pitched voice and comfortable authority make her sound mature and experienced--perfect for delivering the author's pithy observations and urbane insights. International journalist Druckerman writes with the wry humor of an improv comic. Even during pregnancy, she says, women should look sexy and enjoy sex instead of wearing shapeless tops and obsessing about chromosomal disorders. And once born, children should quickly get the message that they are responsible human beings who can be taught to sleep through the night, eat when supper is served, and be considerate of the adults in the family. It's a refreshing alternative to the way American parents strive for their child's approval and make them the center of the universe. T.W. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2019]
