Email this review


Fancy pin work on the solemn subject of baby and child management which impales some of the more sprightly moments in the parental tussle with the Doctor Denton set. From the first baths into which baby is lowered like ""a roaring outboard motor in a lily pond"", through sticky feeding periods, the moving drama of toilet training, translation of the first vocabulary, play time, (equated with sore-head, bargaining, and winning words-time), the battle of wits at bedtime and early morn, through specialized enterprises such as the first movie, illuminating visit to the zoo, cowboy and TV adjustments, etc., this -Spock, designed for the parent's play hour, is a dead-center hit for the baby-minded -- and who isn't?
