In this little book, Dr. Levinson has presented most of the important facts about infants and the diseases of childhood in a very trite manner. He has been happy in his synopsis, and has presented each subject as briefly as is conceivable.

His chapter on "The Kind Grandmother"—how to win over the grandmother, and when to overrule the grandmother gives many practical and unique suggestions.

Most of the illustrations are good, and the book undoubtedly will be a helpful reference book for nurses.
