I'm actually in a unique situation where we are adopting our first child from an African country which we live in, and getting books is a little tricky. I have a kindle and friends/family who would be willing to send books my way, but without being able to go store and look through the selection, I'm not sure what to buy. Our daughter will most likely be anywhere between 9 months - 24 months. What I'm really hoping for is a more of a "how to" type book for 12+ months. I have lots of adoption books, but I don't have any books about the basics of childcare for that age group. I only have baby books, and our little girl will most likely not be a baby! Do y'all have any suggestions? What are/were your favorite books for raising toddlers?
