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 PaulaNYFL's review
