Parents-to-be who have viewed Dr. Klaus's film The Amazing Newborn in childbirth education classes will enjoy this ``book for baby watchers.'' It is a product of the new interest in research on infancy, focusing on the characteris tics and abilities of newborns. The chapters detail a newborn's sensory ca pabilities, facial expressions, move ments, and interaction with family members. Well-illustrated, this work translates clinical research into useful observations that will fascinate pro spective parents. Diane K. Harvey, SAIS Lib., Johns Hopkins Univ., Washington, D.C.
