Roundtable's most expansive licensed series, PARENTS books reflect the magazine's effective synthesis of expert advice and real parents' voices. For each of 12 titles, Roundtable created original editorial, illustrations, and designs —all developed in collaboration wth the experts and editors of Parents. In most cases we delivered finished books to the publisher's warehouse.

 


 

THE PARENTS ANSWER BOOK, the launch, cornerstone title in the Parents magazine series, covers everything the new parent needs to know about a child's physical, emotional, and cognitive development; health; and safety from birth through age five in 880 easy-to-navigate pages. To produce this comprehensive tome, we assembled a team of parenting writers, as well as an advisory board.

AS THEY GROW, a four-book series within the series, focuses on emotional and cognitive milestones for one-year-olds; two-year-olds; three- and four-year-olds; and five- and six-year-olds. The books offer parents insight into what their child feels and understands during each of these stages. Parents also learn how to deal with the challenges that may arise (tantrums or separation anxiety, for example) and how to create a nurturing, supportive environment.

These unique little books celebrate children's physical milestones in engaging photographs of kids doing their things--from smiling, sitting up, and rolling over, to tumbling, painting, and getting dressed. Interactive elements throughout the books (a zipper, doors that open, wheels that spin . . .) encourage kids to show off their new abilities.
