The Mother's Almanac.
Kelly, Marguerite; Parsons, Elia
This book is a compilation of practical suggestions for mothers on caring for children from birth through age 6. Everyday problems are discussed in an easy-to-read anecdotal style. The first section of the book deals with family life, including discussions of birth, breast feeding, basic child care (e.g., how to diaper a squirming baby), babysitters, nutrition, child safety, games, discipline, manners, toilet-training, travel, the arrival of a second baby, divorce, optimum physical and cultural environments for children. Family outings, pets, assigned chores, books, theater, and music are all emphasized as important to an enriching environment. In the final section, arts and crafts activities are adapted for children. Science, cooking, gardening, drama, and woodworking experiments are among those presented in this section. An annotated bibliography covering subjects presented in the book is provided. (BRT)
