This familiar booklet has been revised since 1951 and changes made to incorporate differences in procedures that have become well established. Many public health agencies have accepted the academy's recommendations as standard. Wider acceptance would result in fewer obsolete practices, since the academy report is frequently revised.

This authoritative pamphlet is gaining more and more recognition and constitutes an extremely valuable aspect of the work of the academy. It is a most essential part of the library of every physician dealing with children.
