This volume is a practical insight into the growth of a child's mind and personality during the important first year of development. It describes the ordinary development of one-year-old children, to help parents spot the growing pains, and provide ways in that they might understand their child's growth. Problems explored include feeding, discipline, toilet training, tantrums and sociable play.

This 16-volume series is designed to address life situations faced together by parents and children at various ages, with most volumes focusing on a single year of development. Each book has four to seven chapters dealing with such broad themes as "Walking and Talking," "Play and Imagination," or "A Question of Identity." Unfortunately, the books, which draw upon 50 years of research at the London-based Tavistock Clinic, add nothing of readily noticeable merit to the crowded field of popular child-rearing books. The texts are formal in tone, almost crusty, referring, for example, to Mother and Father in capital letters. Regarding a one-year-old who could not sleep through the night, parents are patronizingly advised that "it may be easier for Father to provide a firm hand." In addition to such old-fashioned notions, the books have neither an index nor illustrations and are only 90 pages long. Librarians would do better to stick to such perennial favorites as Arlene Eisenberg and others' "What To Expect" series. Not recommended.?Lisa Powell Williams, Moline Southeast Lib.,
