KIRKUS REVIEW

A reputably authored, reliably handled first book of baby care, which however introduces nothing new in this field and offers no real threat to the standard equipment Spock's book has become. From pregnancy, on to the furbishings and furnishings for the new baby, to hospitalization and home care and feeding, this covers also the various phases of development at age intervals of months, and then years, with information on skills, habits, training, as well as the problems and contretemps you may meet in the young years. The attitude here is flexible, the contact intimately reassuring, and the manual closes with a bibliography, toy guide, and a short section on expected diseases and casualties. Adequate, but can the birth rate in baby books keep up with the birth rate?
