About the Author

Lynn Rosen is also the author of The Housewife Handbook, a playful guide to life as a housewife, and Table Matters, a book about how to set the table and the history of our dining customs. She lives in the Philly suburbs with her husband and two young sons. Her six-year-old thinks she will turn twenty-four on her next birthday, but this is not true. Joe Borgenicht, D.A.D., is a writer, producer, and current toddler owner. He is the coauthor of The Baby Owner’s Manual, The Action Hero’s Handbook, The Action Heroine’s Handbook, Undercover Golf, and The Reality TV Handbook.
Paul Kepple and Jude Buffum are better known as the Philadelphia-based studio Headcase Design. Their work has been featured in many design and illustration publications, such as American Illustration, Communication Arts, and Print. Paul worked at Running Press Publishers for several years before opening Headcase in 1998. Both graduated from the Tyler School of Art, where they now teach. Intern extraordinaire Jessica Hische helped with many of the illustrations for this book.

Meh Feb. 23 2010
By Zaharia - Published on
Format: Paperback
The games in here are pretty standard. What makes the book interesting is the language used-reminiscent of an owner's manual for any tech. The actual "Baby owner's manual" is totally worth it with great information in a vocabulary that geeks can understand and might actually read. Don't bother with buying this one, borrow it from the library for a quick laugh and reminder of a few fun games for kids.

Creatively funny and informative! Sept. 22 2011
By Zoey Sheppard - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found out about this series of "Baby Owner's" by accident when first buying the Maintenance Log for a friend's baby shower. As a first time dad, who was an agency creative director - he loved it! It's written very cleverly to appeal to a male audience particularly since a lot of baby books tend to be female-skewed. It helps get a first time dad involved and informed about the basics of baby care.

Since then, this has been my favourite baby shower gift for all my first time parent friends.

Good for mechanically, technically minded Oct. 21 2009

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was creative in the way it was written, but not as informative as I would have liked. I got much more information from the internet sites I found about infants...and by just experiencing things with my son as we went. But it does help those who have never been around babies, especially if they are mechanically or technically minded. Great for laughs and for inside lingo when talking about your "model" (aka baby).

Not so funny nor useful as the manual. Oct. 31 2013
By Juan Castro - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really liked the technical point of view and the language they used in the Baby Owner's Manual, so I thought this would be the same. But now that I got it I think that it needs more work. The games are described with too many words, not much practical diagrams; and they fill pages with lyrics to well known baby songs. I hope I can get some interesting game ideas out of it when my baby gets older, but for what I could see so far, there is nothing any parent could not figure out without this help.

Great Gift for Guys Jan. 7 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a tech writer in electrical engineering and I buy this for every newly-expecting father in my group. It's a decently written tech manual complete with illustrations. It's humorous, but actually gives excellent information. There are other technical "baby manuals" out there, but this is by far my favorite.
