    Review:

    No parenting library is complete without this childcare classic. Recently revised, the sixth edition still provides the sensible, compassionate advice and hard-core how-to-do-it tips that Dr. Spock has always been famous for. Whether it's mixing formula, treating chicken pox, or dealing with divorce or a child's homosexuality, Dr. Spock is the man.
