Sandra K. Danziger of University of Michigan reviews "The Time Use of Mothers in the United States at the Beginning of the 21st Century" by Rachel Connelly and Jean Kimmel. The EconLit abstract of the reviewed work begins, "Examines the time use of mothers of preteenaged children in the United States from 2003 to 2006. Discusses a descriptive look at mothers' time use; the nature of maternal caregiving—whether it is more like leisure or household production; husbands' influences on mothers' unpaid time choices; and the role of nonstandard work hours in maternal caregiving.
