It was fun reading about the various different parenting approaches from other cultures. I would say that this book has a light and fluffy approach to each of the topics introduced, and because it is based off of personal experience and has a limited number of stories, it lacks gravity. Plus, there are small errors, like the fact that Inuit don't put their kids in the hood of their Amauti (the hood is designed to cover two heads)... a fun, interesting, light read that may offer differing parenting perspectives to those looking for them.
