This volume is written in an interesting manner and should be of value to every nurse. The latest nursing procedures used in pediatrics are explained. The author discusses concisely and clearly each disease in regard to its etiology, symptoms and treatment, including cases in which special nursing is necessary. Complete and valuable instruction is given the nurse in caring for patients in emergency cases before and after the physician's arrival. The chapters dealing with the psychology of caring for children and the nurse's attitude toward parents are well written. On the whole, the book is a most practical text for both student and graduate nurses.
