A Favorite Author

Every so often we plan to share a favorite author or book that can be helpful to parents or to students who are struggling in school. Sometimes we'll focus on a single book, other times on an author whose work is more wide-ranging or on a category of books. Happy reading!

Today we want to share one of our favorite writers -- Perri Klass, M.D. who is a Professor of both Pediatrics and Journalism at New York University. Dr. Klass has written books and articles on subjects ranging from Quirky Kids to knitting. Her columns for the New York Times Health Section are always worth reading. As a pediatrician, a mother, a daughter, and an avid knitter, she brings a wealth of knowledge and a strong dose of common sense to her writing.

Whether she is calming anxious parents or sharing her own experiences, we think you'll enjoy Dr. Klass' work.
