5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent.....however..... 16 Jun 2005
By Erika Larson-Bean - Published on Amazon.com
This is an excellent resource book. Rosemary gives you natural remedies to common ailments that children suffer from. Her books are easy to read and comprehend and a valuable addition to any herbal library. I can't say enough good things about her books: she gives you recipies to follow, ways to prepare herbal concoctions in various forms using a variety of bases and her writing is very down to earth.

Here is the however: This book and a few of her others are completely included in her book "Rosemary Gladstar's Family Herbal". The "Family Herbal" includes: Taming Stress & Anxiety, Home Remedies for Everyday Ailments, Recipes for Radiant Beauty, For Children, For Women, For Men and also For Elders and even more information then that - including information on how to prepare herbs, An A - Z Herbal Apothecary, etc...

The only book, where the topic is also touched on in "The Family Herbal", I would purchase aside from "The Family Herbal" is "Herbal Healing For Women" and any of her other books whose titles aren't included in "The Family Herbal"

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for parents! 16 Aug 2001
By unhappy customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great book which overviews the gentler herbs which can be safely used with children. Unlike many herbals, this book gives precise dosage guidelines for children by weight and age, AND, more importantly, precise recipes for salves, poultices, teas, syrups, and other forms in which herbs can safely (and easily) be administered to children, including which herbs can be safely mixed and which cannot.
The recipes are classified by illness/symptom, and there is a short section which discusses a holistic approach to not only treating illness/infection/problems, but also preventing future problems. There is also a brief section which overviews the characteristics of commonly used herbs (for children). I use this book with my children almost every week. Without a doubt, Gladstar is one of the best, and this is a must-have for anyone hoping to use herbal remedies with children. It is a serious book about herbal medicine, but easy enough for the beginner to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd love to meet this author 3 May 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
She seems to have such a sensible, grounded approach. I have two young children and am very glad I bought this book.
Things that impressed me:
1. There's a dosage chart, based on age and weight
2. She's obviously not trying to replace a family physician or holistic health care practitioner. The suggestions given are more along the lines of caring for common childhood illnesses...colds, relieving diarrhea or constipation, mild rashes, etc...things that a parent would often care for at home, unless severe.
3. The author's obvious care for people, experience and intelligence shine through on every page.

This book has plenty of good remedies for children's ailments. It is helpful to know that these remedies have been proven by the experience of others. I feel confident using them for my own children.
