Revised by Emmett Holt, Jr. of Johns Hopkins, this is the sixteenth edition of a household standby. Conservative without being backward (save in a few instances), sound, it is primarily a physiological approach to problems in infancy and childhood. Sleep, formulas and diets, weight, training, ailments and diseases, accidents and emergencies, and specific questions of malnutrition, prematurity, etc. Behavior is covered briefly and rather flexibly. This should have a continued long-term career.
