The American Nanny

Robin Rice Morris, Author Tan Press $0 (108p) ISBN 978-0-9615754-7-2
Rice, a former nanny who now runs a nanny placement service, maintains that the American nanny is a phenomenon ""riding the wave of professional women entering the workforce.'' She presents pros and cons of in-home childcare, suggests qualifications employers of nannies should look for and recommends guidelines for determining the caregiver's responsibilities. Advice on recruiting a nanny and screening and interviewing applicants is perhaps the most valuable information in the book. Rice also includes a list of nanny training schools in the U.S. (almost all of which are under two years old) and directs a chapter to nannies themselves, who will undoubtedly find the rest of the book useful as well. Those considering hiring an in-home childcare provider will find here a balanced and thorough discussion of the nanny option. (April)
