    Don't spend the money! Everyone needs to know that this is a VERY short book of illustrations. There's barely any text. Amazon, I want my money back! Don't spend the money!

    There are many etiquette tips that I hadn't realized...& I studied French all through high school, for several years after high school, & have been watching French films for years. It's a fast, simple read. Great addition to learning French & the ways of the French. The author compares American ways with French ways.

    A fun way to get an overview of parenting in my two favorite cities, with humor and sweet drawings/water color illustrations. The authors have accurate perspective and recognize one place isn’t overall better. Readers can expect to take away the best of both!

    A cute short illustrated book for fast browsing. I wouldn't recommend buying it as it is expensive, but it is a great book to borrow from the library.

    I wish there would be a comparative book like this for all cultures attitudes towards parenting. Very enlightening. And clearly, CLEARLY, I am an American parent.

    I thought this was an interesting duality of parenting on both sides of the pond. There were some fascinating differences in the parental approach in France vs. The USA.

    Such a fun read, I am not always in agreement with their choices but really enjoyed seeing my boys realize how they fit in the middle of these 2 cultures.
