This book is similar to many of a like nature that have appeared in this country. It begins with a discussion of infant mortality, and one is struck with the fact that deaths from diarrhea are given a first place and apparently occur three times as frequently as do respiratory conditions in France. This chapter is followed by chapters on hygiene, preparation for delivery, physiology of nutrition, care of the premature or debilitated infant, breast nursing, artificial nursing, weaning, the diseases of children, instruction and care in dispensaries, infant welfare stations, and day nurseries. The volume closes with chapters on the laws of France governing child care and protection.
