An ounce of prevention
Village life has always had hazards for children: Rivers they can fall into, open fires, machetes. Modern life has brought new ones such as pesticides, and rice-milling machines with open motors.
Siphone is himself the father of a small daughter. In this well-illustrated handbook he discusses both safety hazards such as these, and also ways that sanitation and diet affect a child's well-being.
