This book is written by Dr. Juan P. Garrahan, Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Buenos Aires, primarily for the use of General Practitioners, nurses, and nursery personnel, but it would be of great benefit to any young couple interested in the proper handling of their children. It is written in everyday language and covers very adequately the care of infants and children. If this book ever became the Spanish counterpart of Dr. Spock's book, it would certainly mean an improvement in the pediatric care of Spanish-American children. It is up to date and in agreement with the most modern pediatric concepts relating to feeding, medical and surgical care, and social development. It has an adequate bibliography but lacks a more workable index.
