This book is divided into three sections: The first deals with the rules for the care and feeding of infants; the second contains suggestions to mothers, and the third has recipes and charts. This is one of the best organized and most helpful books for the mother that I have seen. It is well written, and the illustrations are well chosen. It is a book that the pediatrician may safely recommend to the mother for her guidance.
