Louise Zabriskie is field director of the Maternity Center Association of the city of New York. She was formerly night supervisor of the Lying-In Hospital of the same city. Her experience in direct care of the mother and baby and in helping the mother to meet the demands of pregnancy and to make ready for the care of the new baby gives her an excellent background for the book she has prepared. She knows not only what is important for the mother to know but also what questions will perplex her, where her interest in development lies and how it may be stimulated further. For these reasons this book with its plentiful excellent illustrations and clear text should prove a very satisfying one to parents, during both the prenatal period and early childhood of their offspring.
