Praise For…


“[Savvy Auntie is] an ‘all-inclusive guide’ for what [Notkin] calls PANKs: Professional Aunts No Kids. It’s a rallying girl-call in high chick-lit style: lots of hot pink and cheerful advice.”

“A chic guide for new and experienced aunts that establishes their valuable family role . . . Communal childrearing at its finest.”

“You’ll be blown away by Melanie Notkin’s expertise on America’s cool aunts, who are over-loved yet overlooked by marketers. If you want to gain the hearts and dollars of these kid-loving, high-spending women, SAVVY AUNTIE is a must read.”

“Here’s a Jewish mother’s secret: having aunties around to love our kids and give us the support we need is priceless. Melanie’s book honors our sisters and friends and I can’t think of anyone more deserving.”

“Savvy Auntie is not only hugely informative, it’s great fun to read. Give it to all to your girlfriends--they’ll thank you, and so will all their lucky nieces and nephews. A great gift for anyone who loves kids.”

“A joy to read. Savvy Auntie is a fun, comprehensive guide that no Auntie (of any kind) should be without! We can’t wait to buy it for our friends.”

“With this savvy guide, Melanie has changed the way we will begin to look at women and family in America. She’s identified the one thing all women - straight, gay, married, single, or partnered - have in common: an unconditional love for the children in our lives.”

“[Notkin’s] site and new book are filled with smart, frank advice about being a positive aunt for kids.”
