Practical, up-to-date, well-referenced coverage of the care of children from birth through adolescence--in an easy-to-use, find-it-now presentation

A Doody's Core Title ESSENTIAL PURCHASE for 2011!

"Overall, this is a well-organized, relatively thorough resource that provides a wealth of information for a wide range of practitioners. The updated and new chapters, as well as the large number of website references, are valuable additions which will extend the useful lifespan of this book compared to standard print resources. The online references/resources allow users to obtain real-time, current information, and enable this book to compete favorably with such online resources as UpToDate, which requires a separate fee."--Doody's Review Service
