Absolutely, the best book on childhood ailments and treatment options. It was our 'bible' when our son was growing up- now he's 21!! It is so worn that the binding split in half but still a great resource. It is my go-to gift for every baby shower or Christmas gift to anyone I know with young kids. ...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is the book I raised my children on. It gives all types of healing methods for different ailments. I specifically use the natural ones and they have always worked like a charm. I buy this book for every new Mom I know.
