A funny, tough-minded case for being and having an only child, debunking the myths about only children and taking glory in the pleasures of singletons: “A swift and absorbing read…may change your mind and the national conversation” (Psychology Today). Journalist Lauren Sandler is an only child and the mother of one. After investigating what only children are really like and whether stopping at one child is an answer to reconciling motherhood and modernity, she learned a lot about herself—and a lot about our culture’s assumptions. In this heartfelt work, Sandler legitimizes a discussion about the larger societal costs of having more than one, which Jessica Grose in her review in The New Republic calls, “the vital part of the conversation that’s not being discussed in the chatter” surrounding parenting. Between the recession, the stresses of modern life, and the ecological dangers ahead, there are increasing pressures on parents to think seriously about singletons. Sandler considers the unique ways that singletons thrive, and why so many of their families are happier. One and Only examines these ideas, including what the rise of the single-child family means for our economies, our environment, and our freedom, leaving the reader “informed and sympathetic,” writes Nora Krug in the Washington Post. Through this journey, “Sandler delves deeply, thoughtfully, and often humorously into history, culture, politics, religion, race, economics, and of course, scientific research” writes Lori Gottlieb, The New York Times Book Review. “I couldn’t put it down,” says Randi Hutter Epstein in the Huffington Post. Sandler “isn’t proselytizing, she’s just stating it like it is. Seductively honest.” At the end, Sandler has quite possibly cracked the code of happiness, demonstrating that having just one may be the way to resolve our countless struggles with adulthood in the modern age.

WINNER OF THE 2016, 2015, 2014 & 2013 PREFERRED CHOICE AWARD, 2012, 2011 AND 2010 BOOK OF THE YEAR FOR CHILDREN'S INTERACTIVE BOOKS AND THE 2009 SEAL OF EXCELLENCE AWARDED BY CREATIVE CHILD MAGAZINE. Not since the Three Bears has there been a children's story about the family of three or the only child. This book captures the spirit and love of the family of three and invites other family numbers to participate. The book is interactive and asks children to draw pictures representing their own family unit on the blank pages. This makes the book more than just a storybook but a pictorial journal of the child's personal family experience. Inspired by her own family of three, Vivian Cameron-Gallo sets out to take the "only child" out of the isolation that generalizes and labels the only child. The single child does not stand alone but stands as an important part of a larger unit, a family. This interactive story is about families and the things they do together. The illustrations by Christina Simcic have captured the love of many different families. "We're Three" let's you know that your place in the world is special! REVIEWS: Rating: Five Stars: "There are all kinds of families in this great big world. Some are big with lots of kids and some are small, with not too many or simply none at all." Did you know that the single-child family is the fastest growing type of American family? Yet, when author Vivian Cameron-Gallo, the mother of an "only child," sought a children's book that represented her daughter Ava, she found only a few and those had a melancholy tone with negative stereotypes. Therefore, inspired by her own family of three, she wrote this endearing little book to make the single child feel "normal" and part of something bigger a family. The gentle, flowing verse makes for easy reading, and the colorful drawings by Christina Simcic add visual beauty to the text. I think that We're Three is a very beneficial and useful book, and it has my hearty endorsement. --Wayne Walker, STORIES FOR CHILDREN MAGAZINE

Thousands of books have examined the effects of parents on their children. In All Joy and No Fun, award-winning journalist Jennifer Senior now asks: what are the effects of children on their parents? In All Joy and No Fun, award-winning journalist Jennifer Senior tries to tackle this question, isolating and analyzing the many ways in which children reshape their parents' lives, whether it's their marriages, their jobs, their habits, their hobbies, their friendships, or their internal senses of self. She argues that changes in the last half century have radically altered the roles of today's mothers and fathers, making their mandates at once more complex and far less clear. Recruiting from a wide variety of sources—in history, sociology, economics, psychology, philosophy, and anthropology—she dissects both the timeless strains of parenting and the ones that are brand new, and then brings her research to life in the homes of ordinary parents around the country. The result is an unforgettable series of family portraits, starting with parents of young children and progressing to parents of teens. Through lively and accessible storytelling, Senior follows these mothers and fathers as they wrestle with some of parenthood's deepest vexations—and luxuriate in some of its finest rewards. Meticulously researched yet imbued with emotional intelligence, All Joy and No Fun makes us reconsider some of our culture's most basic beliefs about parenthood, all while illuminating the profound ways children deepen and add purpose to our lives. By focusing on parenthood, rather than parenting, the book is original and essential reading for mothers and fathers of today—and tomorrow.
