    One thought on “Taking Care Of Your Child: A Parents' Guide To Medical Care”

    1. OK this book is not the type you read from cover to cover, it is more of a reference book, which is great. It also covers every topic/issue one can think of or come across, which is also great. It only deserved 3 stars because of the level of coverage; it addresses every topic only on a very basic level without going in depth, so if you know a little about something and need more this is not the book to go to. Part IV of the book is a very good and practical tool as it guides a parent through il [...]

    2. This "mom's medical reference" book is user friendly. Body systems are grouped together and individual symptoms are listed in the index. Flow-chart questions guide a parental ignorance and paranoia in the right direction, with solutions ranging from "apply home treatment" (with instructions) to "make appointment with physician" to "see physician today" to "see physician NOW!"This remains one of the most-used gifts from my first daughter's baby shower. I STILL consult it from time to time!

    3. A really good reference for identifying childhood illnesses and symptoms, with instructions for home remedies, when to see the doctor and what to expect from him regarding the illness. I've thumbed through this many a time in the wee hours of the night while caring for a sick kid--VERY helpful.

    4. For every patient who comes in bringing their kid with something they could have looked up I wish I had a copy of this book to give them. You can fish for a man and feed him for a day, or you can give him a book on fishing and hope he stops asking you. HEHEHEH

    5. A very nice resource to have on-hand. Full of a variety of medically relevant topical helps for parents. Easy to read without being condescending.

    6. This book was very helpful and easy to read. I'm sure I'll pick it up again every time I have a question about my baby's health.

    7. This is very informative. I relied on it a lot for my first child. I find myself re-reading passages. And the neat thing is this book covers adolence as well.

    8. I haven't actually finished it. I have thumbed through it and it looks like it is primarily designed for reference and not actual casual linear reading. Looks pretty thorough and up to date.
