The humor and good sense with which this book is written will prove a boon to many a mother confronted with her first baby. The information is excellent, based on an understanding of the needs and the development of the infant and also on the needs of the mother for reassurance and relaxation. The illustrations are delightful. Ample space for photographs is provided in the part of the book set aside for the individual baby's record.
