A good standard, up-to-date baby book. Begins with the first symptoms of pregnancy, goes through the period with safe and sane advice to the mother and information as to proper preparations to make. Touches lightly on the period of the confinement. Then goes through the early years of the baby's life -- first, week by week, then month by month, finally, by longer intervals. Food, clothing, growth, mental development, handling of psychological problems, discipline, training, all the small problems that may arise in the development of a normal, healthy baby. A book for the parents who would have bought Holt a few years ago. Contributor to Good Housekeeping. Eminent New York pediatrician.
