Now parents, relatives and gift-givers can take back control instead of worrying about lead paint, choking hazards and other safety violations that have caused the recent recall of millions of imported children's products. Made Here, Baby!, http://www.madeherebaby.com is the essential guide to finding the best American-made products for kids from preemies to preteens as well as for new moms.

Throughout the book, Wolk highlights the unique profile of each of these American companies and also provides a useful index of women-owned businesses, companies committed to green or organic manufacturing and companies which have been in business for over a century. This easy-to-use guide features interesting facts about each company as well as details on how you can find and purchase their products. This collection cannot be found online as the list was compiled after thousands of hours of work. No company was favored over another or paid to be in Made Here, Baby!
