This is a comprehensive guide to recognizing and treating medical problems that commonly affect children. A section on caring for sick children covers everything from taking their temperatures to keeping them busy when they are bedridden. ""Visual diagnosis guides'' present detailed drawings of parts of the body, designed to help a parent identify symptoms of ailments or illnesses. The bulk of Stoppard's book is devoted to a comprehensive alphabetical listing of complaints, which includes descriptions of the conditions and their causes, and recommended remedies. Tips for home and car safety and directions for administering first aid round out this extremely worthwhile volume. Its strong visuals and concise explanations and directions make it easier to use than many books on the subject. (March)
