I've been meaning to mention these forever.
1. Reading Magic by Mem Fox.
Great treatise by beloved children's author on how to get your child to LOVE reading. Such an easy read and really motivating too. Many thanks to Eliza for the recommendation.
2. How To Get Your Kid to Eat...but Not Too Much by Ellyn Satter
I received this book when Laurel was born, but hadn't read it until a few months ago. An excellent read on how to get your child to eat, without causing neuroses. Love this!
