From Crib to Kindergarten — The Essential Child Safety Guide
Dorothy A. Drago, M.P.H.
Johns Hopkins University Press; April 2007. 208 pp. 3 halftones, 61 line drawings.

DESCRIPTION
Named among Library Journal's Best Consumer Health Books of 2007. In this essential guide, an eminent child safety specialist explains how to reduce the risk of childhood injury at home — and beyond. Her tips help protect children from birth to age five—those who are most vulnerable to serious injury. She describes how to provide a safe environment during the daily activities of sleeping, eating, bathing, dressing, playing, and traveling. The major hazards and potential injuries associated with each activity are identified along with the age when the child is at greatest risk. Illustrations, checklists, and summary charts complement the text and put valuable lessons and critical information at parents' fingertips. From Crib to Kindergarten is an indispensable "how to" for parents, grandparents, teachers, babysitters, and daycare providers.

Available in both hardcover and paperback from the Johns Hopkins University Press website, from Amazon.com and in bookstores. Be sure to mention the code HNAF to receive your 30% discount on the Johns Hopkins site.
