Mosby's Pocket Guide to Pediatric Assessment offers a concise but comprehensive approach to health assessment for the pediatric client. It begins with a general description of history taking and includes approaches to children at various ages, nutritional assessment, and measurement and evaluation of vital signs.

Given the extensive information provided, this reference is ideal for a broad range of nurses and students dealing with pediatric patients.
