An excellent, straightforward book, to be recommended to any mother who will write a few notes on her child's family and developmental history by jotting down illnesses as they come along. Each page covers a subject indicating to the mother the most important features to be recorded. There are charts for weight, dates and duration of colds and sore throats; and particularly suitable is the chart for temperature and a few other essentials which the parent should record in any acute infection. In a second edition certain details might well be rearranged; for example, the page for dates of walking, talking and illnesses would come more naturally immediately before the temperature charts instead of before birth.
