Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This four-volume resource edited by Krapp (ed., Psychologists & Their Theories: For Students) and Wilson (Irrational Medicine) covers the prenatal stages to age 18. It contains approximately 600 articles that range from 500 to 4000 words each and address medical conditions such as hernias, ringworm, and strep throat as well as topics like acting out, bullies, single-parent homes, and even allowances and money management; all of the articles were contributed by healthcare professionals. Boldface terms in the text refer readers to related entries for further exploration. A "Resources" section at the end of the work cites a variety of important medical textbooks, journals, web sites, and organizations. Impressive features include appendixes of growth charts and common childhood medications with descriptions and usage information. Roughly 300 color photos, illustrations, tables, and charts appear throughout, and a list of key terms, a glossary of medical terms, and a two-level subject index complete the set. Bottom Line Finding a comprehensive resource on both children and adolescents can be a difficult task, as few books discuss both age groups in depth. This clearly written encyclopedia will be useful for students conducting research and for parents wanting to learn more about their children's conditions. Facts On File's well-received Encyclopedia of Children's Health and Wellness (2004) might be a more suitable purchase for libraries with tight budgets.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Douglas Moodie, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a four-volume encyclopedia of children's health from infancy through adolescence. The authors make it very clear that it is intended to be a supplement to, not a substitute for, consultation with a pediatric healthcare provider. The encyclopedia is extensive but not all-inclusive.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive encyclopedia of children's health from infancy through adolescence that is a one-stop source for medical information. It has been created for use by the lay public as well as by health professionals. It is worthwhile to have a complex encyclopedia of children's health that is written in a way that can appeal and be understandable to the lay public. The four volumes are extremely well done and certainly meet these objectives.
Audience: The audience is pediatric health professionals and the lay public interested and involved in children's healthcare issues.
Features: The book has some 600 full-length articles and uses a standardized format involving diseases and disorders, procedures, immunization and drugs, and development. The particular areas covered, such as atrial septal defects, go on to give a definition and a description of the defect, demographics, causes and symptoms, when to call the doctor, diagnosis, treatment, follow-up, and prognosis. Each section also deals with parental concerns and includes a wonderful key term index. The resources at the end of every subject cover books related to the topic, periodicals, organizations that are related to the condition, as well as web sites where one can find additional information.
Assessment: This is an extensive resource on healthcare issues in children written for the lay public that is easy to read, well illustrated and well organized. This reference will be a significant help to any one concerned with children's healthcare issues and outcomes.
