Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Neville, a veteran Bay Area pediatric nurse and parent educator, has written an authoritative reference covering a broad range of topics in health, behavior, and human needs that every parent needs to know for their child from birth to age six. In Part 1, readers learn about the norms of developmental milestones and childhood behaviors, and the author discusses how those elements affect behaviors within the family. Neville reassures parents when their child is within normal developmental range and alerts them when it is necessary to seek professional help. Part 2, an alphabetical reference for dealing with child development in daily life, guides parents through three dozen topics relevant in the first six years of life. Neville's book is accurate, reliable, and practical, with many charts and graphs that render the information accessible. Recommended for all public libraries.
