This book offers ultramodern good advice about babies and how to live with them. It is handsome and attractive, beautifully illustrated with photographs of baby and family and printed on fine paper in large, well spaced type. Its philosophy is a middle-of-the-road, sensibly charted course of behavior that avoids the old-style, rigid regimentation in a baby's life, which led to conflicts and heartaches, as well as the extremes of letting baby do everything in his own way without hindrance. The appropriate place for fathers and grandparents is indicated deftly. Babies ought to be a great deal happier, mothers less worried, fathers more useful and grandparents less disgruntled, if this charming book is liberally used as a gift to the families of new babies.
