The Happiest Baby on the Block by Harvey Karp

The Happiest Baby on the Block (2002) tackles one of the biggest issues new parents will face: the constant wails and tears of their baby.

Who should read these blinks?
  • New parents feeling helpless in the face of their child’s cries
  • Readers interested in the psychology of babies
  • Anyone who’s expecting
