Resource Type

Book - Parent


"Based on the research and clinical experience of America's leading children's hospital, this reference work, several years in the making, is the most complete and authoritative guide to child health and development ever published. Three essential parts form this unique work: a detailed account of all aspects of normal development from birth through the school years, a carefully designed emergency section, and a comprehensive guide to every common illness or condition that affects children. For the first time, a single work offers parents all the medical, psychological, and practical information they need to raise healthy children from birth through elementary school. Packed full of information on symptoms, causes, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention, vital, up-to-date advice for choosing medical care and insurance, and finding good childcare, The Children's Hospital Guide includes the charts of normal development at all ages, and a comprehensive resource section." -From the Publisher
