KIRKUS REVIEW

Modernized and revised (this is the 4th edition), this still seems obviously not of this generation in its advice on physical care, which is definitely cotton-wool. The psychological attitudes, on the other hand, are contemporary and flexible, sound and sensible, and the coverage includes the nursery, clothes, growth and development, fooding, foods, habits and habit training, sleep, exercise, toys, immunizations and sicknesses, travel, a typical day, etc. You may be startled at the inclusion of long garters in the layette, which may indicate a market among grandmothers rather than mothers.
