What Every Baby Knows

T. Berry Brazelton, Author Da Capo Press $14.9 (274p) ISBN 978-0-201-09262-2
Professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, chief of the Child Development Unit at Boston Children's Hospital, Brazelton is the author of several parental guides (Infants and Mothers, etc.); his frequent TV appearances have made him popular as an adviser on child care. Here he recounts his counseling sessions with five couples and their small children, families that differ widely in economic and social backgrounds. Problems concerned with the traditionally overlooked middle child, of a timid little boy distressed by his parents' divorce, of slow-developing and premature babies are among those covered in the case histories. Brazelton's questions to the parents and their replies suggest ways for the reader to handle like issues. First serial to Family Circle; Literary Guild alternate; author tour. (October 29)
