The seventh edition of this popular work has been enlarged by almost one hundred pages. It has been brought up to date, but the old features of brevity and clearness have been left. Added chapters are on fetal growth and development, development and growth by periods and the appraisal of the child. These are placed in a new section, entitled Growth and Development. The section on the feeding of infants has been enlarged by chapters on vitamins, digestion and metabolism and food elements. The book is well bound and printed, and the illustrations are excellent.
