Baby Proofing Basics - How to Keep Your Child SafeToday's Giveaway is Baby Proofing Basics: How to Keep Your Child Safe", a 144 page book by Vicki Lansky, with a retail value of $10.00! (Thanks to Born to Love - a natural baby product website)

This practical guide contains childproofing tips for every room in the house and for outdoors, backyard, beach, camping, hiking, and travel of all kinds. It provides illustrations and information on children's safety at playtime, mealtime, and holidays, as well as teaching youngsters about everyday dangers and dealing safely with pets. Also included is an invaluable chapter on poison prevention and what to do if poisoning actually occurs.

From Library Journal - "Child safety used to be a topic given a chapter or two in a general childcare manual. No more. Popular author Lansky ( The Best of Vicki Lansky's Practical Parenting , Book Peddlers, 1987; etc.) fills her new book with safety tips, indoors and out. She covers the usual (toys, household chemicals, Halloween) and dangers of a mobile society (plane trips, swimming pools, bike seats, visiting Grandma). The book is chock full of common sense, and Lansky throws in many tips parents may not have heard of (wet shoelaces before tying so that they'll stay tied, and lay a ladder across a driveway to keep young trikers from going into the street). Far from being overprecautionary, this is a well-thought-out guide to keeping toddlers and young ones safe and healthy." - Linda Beck, Indian Valley P.L., Telford, Pa.
