The Little Book of Pediatrics: Infants to Teens and Everything In Between is a pocket-sized, easy-to-understand introduction into the field of pediatrics. Written with the non-physician in mind, you will not be bogged down with the heavy details, yet every basic fact that you need is right there.

The Little Book of Pediatrics provides a fun and humorous twist to combine the most up-to-date evidence on child health with the practical approach needed for community primary care practices.

Written to combine a broad appeal with specific important knowledge on child health, The Little Book of Pediatrics is a conversational-style book that includes images and diagrams that pack a big punch!

From head to toe and everything in between—get a quick look into pediatrics:
• Nutrition
• Cardiovascular
• Gastroenterology
• Dermatology
• Oral Health
• Psychosocial Health
• And More….

Drs. Michael J. Steiner and Kelly S. Kimple also include little known “fun facts” to engage and explain some of the mysteries in children’s health.

The Little Book of Pediatrics: Infants to Teens and Everything In Between is an easy-to-read and fun portable resource that will be invaluable to medical assistants, office staff, students in health sciences, and everyone that works in the pediatrics industry or with pediatric patients, but isn’t a pediatrician.
