The first edition of this book was published privately by Dr. Tenney for his patients. Written in the conversational manner, it covers the subjects of furniture, clothing, feeding, training and health for the baby's first year as well as most of the relatively unimportant things which worry many mothers. The baby's point of view, a common sense attitude and the availability of the doctor are all stressed. The manner of presentation and the large amount of information included make this book enjoyable and valuable reading. It is, indeed, a perfect book for parents.
