    Book Review

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Busy Mom's Cheat Sheet by Lilly Cadoch is an uplifting book for readers where the author speaks about the goals of parents and how children are expected to perform well right from a very young age. The book addresses the importance of mind, body and spirit, and how balancing them will help us achieve enriching and fulfilling lives. It also tells how to address the problems revolving around the body, mind and soul separately, helping readers to look into their lives and make the necessary changes; thereby discovering the purpose of their lives.

The author handles the topic of body, mind and soul extensively in a manner that can be comprehended by any reader. The balance and harmony that can be achieved after reading this book will bring about the theory of abundance without being wasteful or excessive. The 45 bonus recipes are a treat, simple and easy to try out, helping balance food habits and healthy eating. The positive affirmations shared by the author are motivational and encouraging and will help in making positive changes in one's outlook towards oneself and life in general.

I found the tips, techniques and ideas in the book easy to incorporate into daily living. The method of teaching meditation to kids is simple and easy, and the book is a good tool for readers to guide their kids onto a good and holistic path which will be always be beneficial to them.

The author has made a clear, easy to read, thoughtful book that can help any and every mom (and dad) out there. This book is parent to parent so it's relatable and honest. You are not reading what a "professional" thinks parenting should be like but rather from a real parent running a real life. Highly suggested.

Lilly’s book gave me great practical advice on things such as food selection and living with gratitude. As a working mom of three, it’s not always easy to remember to be grateful. I especially loved the section on positive affirmation that were great conversation starters in my family.

I just finished this book and it's really the most warm, generous, truly helpful book about children's health (mind and body) that I've read. It includes tips for mealtime (lots of easy recipes), bedtime, and time (management) in general! And so much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!

The Busy Mom's Cheat Sheet was a pretty interesting read. I have one youngling of my own and it is hard to get her to eat healthy while having a busy lifestyle. There are lots of different choices for helping keep your kids healthy and different options for giving your kids the knowledge they need to know to keep up that lifestyle in their lives.

I will admit I am not a big cooker, I'm more of a what can I cook that takes the least amount of time type of mom, but there are some items in here that I would definitely try out with my own kid. I enjoyed reading it and think any parent would benefit from reading it.
