Translated into Spanish this book covers the management of over 50 common childhood illnesses and health problems. Written in an easy to read and easy to understand manner for parents and caregivers of children from birth to eight years of age. Everyday language with matching illustrations are used to describe the illness or health problem and to discuss what needs to be done for the child. Some of the illnesses discussed are “ear ache”, “sore throat”, “sun burn”, “diarrhea” and “nosebleed”. With each condition questions are asked and answered: “What is it?”, “What do I see?”, “What can I do at home?”, “When do I call the doctor or nurse?” and “What else should I know about it?”. This book contains many useful child safety tips, discusses over-the-counter medications, infection, and gives step by step information on how to know when a child has a fever. A simple A to Z list in the back of the book makes it easy for the reader to locate a specific topic in the book.
