Laurie is sure love at first sight doesn't exist anywhere but the movies. But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man who she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there's a moment of pure magic...and then her bus drives away. Certain they're fated to find each other again, Laurie spends a year scanning every bus stop and cafe in London for him. But she doesn't find him, not when it matters anyway. Instead they "reunite" at a Christmas party, when her best friend, Sarah, giddily introduces her new boyfriend: the man from the bus.

The story, the twists and turns, the narrator, every moment was a joy to listen to. Best Christmas book I’ve read in a very long time. I’m a little sad to have finished it.

Baffling and beloved, with the capacity to go from joy to frustration in seconds, young children are some of the most misunderstood people on the planet. Parents and caregivers struggle with these little ones, who are known for their extreme behaviour, from tantrums, resistance, and aggression to separation anxiety, bedtime protests, and not listening. The key to understanding youngsters lies in realizing that their challenging behaviour is not personal, nor is it a disorder or deficit.

Having long been a fan of Dr. Neufeld's work, I was so happy to come across this book. Dr. MacNamara shares so much practical wisdom here that I'm sure to listen to it again and again. I wish everyone with preschool children would have the opportunity to hear the thoughtful approach to raising children. I have a clearer understanding of why my child behaves the way she does and have useful strategies to support us both while we go through life's up and downs together.
