In order to appreciate this book one should be familiar with the volume on the same subject "A Thousand Families in Newcastle on Tyne." That told of all the children born in Newcastle in May and June of 1947 who were intimately observed by Sir James Spence and his collaborators. During the first year of these children's lives a complete record was kept of their illnesses and other significant observations.

This volume continues the intimate follow-up of the 847 children age 1 to 5 and their families.
