The Normal Child provides a modern description of the normal variation of physical and behavioural features in the infant and young child. By reference to the abnormal, it will explain how to recognise and distinguish between normal variation and abnormal development that should be investigated further.

This new text was fortuitously released as I began my own placement in Child Health and I found it served as an excellent introduction to child development. In particular it highlighted the normal variation that can be seen in children, both physically and psycho-behaviourally.
It is written with all health care professionals in mind and consequently explores a broad range of areas related to child development, all with an emphasis on child health.
