Dr. Patri needs no introduction, for he has possessed the reputation of a leader in education and child guidance for many years. The material in this book is an adaptation of the material used in Dr. Patri's widely syndicated newspaper column "Our Children." The book is divided into sections which are in turn divided according to subject. The subject index in the back of the book enables one easily to find references to such parental worries as eating habits, health, arithmetic, gambling, money and unmanageable child. The advice is always simple, sound and practical. This book is valuable reading for every parent. Because it discusses all those nonmedical problems which often worry parents more than the usual illnesses of childhood, this book should be on every pediatrician's and general practitioner's reference shelf.
