This small journal in its bright but dignified cover, and its ninth year, offers a refreshing contrast to much of the inexpensive reading matter that brings information about children to the pediatrician's desk and waiting room. It has no advertising. It is neat, attractive, and brief. It wastes no time in being chatty. It tells a good deal about pediatric practice, but it also covers many areas peripheral to ours, about which we cannot afford to be ignorant.
