From the moment I started reading, “If your kid eats this book, everything will still be okay” by Lara Zibners MD, former assistant professor of pediatric emergency medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in NY, I couldn’t put it down. I wish I had had this book before my first son was born. Raise your hand if you were concerned when your baby’s poop changed color or consistency. How do you feel when your daughter has a fever? Do you panic when your son has a rash? What should you do if your toddler puts something in his ear? Lara Zibners, in a very straightforward and often humorous way, talks about all these childhood occurrences and a lot more. She writes, “This book is not about the basics of child care such as bathing, diapering, and feeding…. The intent of this book is to help parents avoid the stress and expense of a potentially needless visit to the doctor or ER.” She lets us know when an injury or illness is a real emergency and you have to call 911 or go to the hospital; when you should call your doctor right away or wait until the next day; or when you just have to give loving care.
