The New child health encyclopedia: the complete guide for parents
Delacorte Press, Dec 1, 1987 - Family & Relationships - 740 pages
Child health begins at home. Because parents are on duty or else 'on call' 24 hours a day, every day of the year, Boston Children's Hospital believes that they deserve the most up-to-date, reliable information. The Health Information Department at Children's Hospital, Medical Editor and Associate Physician-in-Chief, Frederick H. Lovejoy, Jr., M.D., and over 150 consultants from all specialties of the hospital have worked for over 5 years to prepare this definitive guide to every aspect of child health. Teachers, childcare professionals, anyone responsible for a child's well-being, will find the book essential.
