This is a book which should be invaluable to the mother of small children. It is packed with suggestions to keep a child busy and happy, whether he be bedridden or merely bored. There are chapters on practically every conceivable subject pertaining to the amusement of a child. Suggestions on what to do or make, how to do it, materials needed, and even on just plain talk are so numerous as to satisfy the needs of any harassed mother. There are lists, many outlined by ages, on ways to amuse a child in bed, toys to buy, suggestions for interesting reading, gifts for children to make, catalogues of children's books, information on children's magazines, and recipes. The final chapter discusses making it easier to care for a child in bed.

This book should be a must for every mother. Those who buy it will never regret it.
