This manual contains tips on preventing childhood accidents and instructions for handling those accidents which do occur. Part One outlines ways of preventing accidents involving the home, infant equipment, toys, school, cars, bicycles, playgrounds, sports, hiking, camping, and water; it also provides blank forms for a family's emergency medical information and phone numbers, as well as colorful charts with information about first aid supplies, immunization, childhood illnesses and drug identification. Part Two contains step-by-step first aid procedures printed in large type and illustrated with drawings. The back cover features a large-print listing of specific emergencies which correspond to thumb-indexed sections of the text. (SB)
