Feeding our Old Fashioned Children: By C. Anderson Aldrich and Mary M. Aldrich. New York: The Macmillan Co., 1941. 112 pp.

Review by:
Irwin Philip Sobel

A book for parents about the feeding difficulties of their offspring should be very persuasive. This little book is eminently that. By means of the simple and entertaining presentation of the facts, it will help to create in the lay reader a healthier point of view about anorexia and the eating problems of infants and children. The book is not dogmatic or pretentious. It has the virtue of obviously making good sense. The material is skilfully chosen and handled; the style, direct, racy and amusing.

One of the most widespread and tenacious problems the pediatrician is called upon to grapple with is anorexia. After he has performed a complete physical examination, little time may unfortunately remain for an adequate discussion of the subject. His recommendations are sometimes apt to cause bewilderment in the unprepared parent. The Aldrichs' book should lay a groundwork of preliminary parental enlightenment which will enable the pediatrician to function more effectively as an educator and a giver of insight.
