Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Laura Dobbins Beeks, RN, MSN (Medical University of South Carolina)
Description: This book provides detailed information about the physical and psychological development of infants and toddlers and includes information about common childhood diseases. There is an overall focus on preventative care.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide basic comprehensive health information to parents and the general public about the growth and developmental need of infants and toddlers. Safety tips, nutritional information and advice regarding common pediatric disorders are detailed and informative. The glossary of terms is helpful along with the immunization tables and detailed historical data regarding disease prevalence.
Audience: This book is intended for "basic consumers," but is written at a literacy level geared towards healthcare professionals. The basic consumer would have a difficult time comprehending much of the information and resource graphs (especially in relation to the Immunization Schedule).
Features: This book details the developmental, nutritional, and emotional needs of the infant to age three. It includes how to care for the neonate, common pediatric disorders, safety tips, and milestone assessments. It is a superb comprehensive resource, but some parents would not be able to understand much of the important information, especially in relation to pediatric disorders and the Immunization Schedule. A second edition with an eighth-grade literacy level is recommended to target a very needy parent population.
Assessment: This is an excellent comprehensive resource for consumers, but the literacy level is too advanced for some parents. This book as it is would be a great reference for nurses and residents in primary care and family pediatric settings. The cover should be more consumer friendly if parents are to he attracted to it. One suggestion is to use a photograph of a baby and toddler to attract a parent seeking a reference.
Gleaned from government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and periodicals, articles provide information for parents about the health and development of children from birth to the age of three. They cover the newborn, nutrition, well-baby care, tips for parents, common medical concerns during early childhood, safety and first aid, and additional help and information. A glossary help parents communication with pediatricians, but does not indicate pronunciation. Web sites are among the information sources cited. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
From The Critics
Infant and Toddler Health Sourcebook provides basic consumer information about the physical and mental development of newborns to toddlers, from common medical disorders and concerns to immunization schedules, safety tips and advice for parents. While libraries will want to use Infant and Toddler Health Sourcebook as a basic health reference, many a parent will want to add it to a home collection.
