The book is for everybody who seeks to know about children’s ailments. Many topics are discussed, including fever, infections (which can affect every system in the body), hygiene, food and nutrition in children, and many more. The knowledge acquired from the book will enable carers to —recognise symptoms and signs of diseases, particularly early; —know what to do and also what not to do; —know when to seek medical help, which is very important; —be able to prevent some of the diseases and to protect against them; and also importantly, —participate in the management of the sick child with the professionals. Emergencies in children are discussed at some length. Prevention of accidents in children is very important as any injury can have lifelong damaging effects on a child. In most minor injuries/ailments, proper first aid measures may be all that are required to cure the conditions. Diseases like malaria, other serious infectious diseases, and parasitic infestations are now not restricted only to particular areas of the world. Their management is very important and well discussed in the book. It is an essential book on child health worldwide.
