Her approach is supportive without scare tactics and her style is very readable, full of bullet points, checklists and call out boxes. Although it's called "The Safe Baby" it really is about safety for all children. The book takes you through each room in the house as well as additional scenarios that can cause concern such as poisons, hiring a baby sitter, gun safety, fire safety, etc.
The appendix is full of additional resources that are so helpful including common poisonous houseplants, recall information, safety products and additional checklists. This book would make a great shower gift for a new mom or a gift for any mom who needs some reassurance about keeping her kids safe. Holtzman's expertise as well as being a mom makes her a very valuable resource herself.
