Books on the feeding of children are myriad. Whether they are read by mothers who need the knowledge they contain is questionable. While the present volume contains essential information concerning the principles of nutrition and the practical planning of diets, it is of such length that it possibly may not fill the need for which it is intended. If a child becomes ill, his feeding should be carefully supervised by the physician. A few simple rules should suffice for the planning of the normal daily diet. Those mothers who are interested in the subject of child nutrition often become unnecessarily concerned about the matter of planning the child's diet. The book, however, is well written and simple enough so that it is easily understood. Those mothers who read it probably will find their efforts well expended.
