Dr. Ivy Faske, a 30-year practicing pediatrician living in Palm Beach Gardens Florida, has written and self-published a fabulous new book for parents entitled They Do Come With Instructions! The book is subtitled: What Parents Need To Know about the Physiology, Care and Development of Newborns to Young Children.
The 226-page soft-cover book is in full color and contains more than 220 photographs of normal (and not-so-normal) newborn rashes, “geographic” tongue, sore and strep throats, the normal resolution of a hemangioma, chicken pox and shingles, different types of diaper rashes, conjunctivitis, fifth disease, eczema, hives, poison ivy, ringworm and so much more. It also includes growth charts for boys and girls, as well as Vaccine Information Sheets for all routine childhood vaccines.
While not intended to replace responsible pediatric care, it will prove to be an invaluable resource for moms and dads, allowing them to better discuss a child’s medical condition with their pediatrician. “They Do Come With Instructions!” is the only book of its kind available in America. Everyone who has seen it calls it the “Perfect baby shower gift.”
