Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Medication use by children requires special consideration due to the physiological differences between children and adults. This book provides parents with information on administering over-the-counter and prescription drugs to children. Each section deals with a group of related medications, describing their indications, adverse effects, warnings and precautions, and medication and food interactions. Specific medications are listed, with dosages broken down by the child's age. Also included is a brief list of medications that may be harmful if taken during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. There is a description of what should be kept in a medicine chest, as well as a brief list of toxic household products and poisonous plants and how to treat exposure to them. Also listed are the U.S. and Canadian poison control centers. Since most drug information sources written for the lay reader do not cover children, this book may be useful for public libraries, although it is probably most appropriate as a home reference book.

More About the Author

Anne Turner Coppola
(9-17-1938 to 6-27-2012)

Anne Turner Coppola was born in Redford, New York, one of seven children. She was ten years old when her father died. When she was twelve, her youngest brother died in an auto accident. Her mother went into severe depression and was hospitalized, and Anne was placed in a foster home in Plattsburgh, New York, where she attended D'Youville Academy, a Catholic school for girls. An academic honors student, she wrote a weekly article for the local newspaper and was valedictorian of her high school graduating class. Graduating with honors, she received several scholarships toward her college training to be a teacher. While in college, she met and married her air force husband in 1958. She received her teaching degree from the State University of New York at Albany, and her master's degree from Rutgers University. She taught elementary, middle, and high school students at various schools, as she and her husband made their journey south to Staten Island, New York; Atlanta, Georgia; Miami, Florida; and finally, Sarasota, Florida. After her retirement from teaching, she served as president of her homeowner's association and as ombudsman for the State of Florida, inspecting nursing homes to ensure quality care for patients. After battling breast cancer for eight years, she died in 2012.

Anne Turner Coppola was the author of three books written for pre-teens and early teens. Following her death from breast cancer in 2012, her husband found three manuscripts she had written in 1993. Reviewing the stories, he believed they would have strong appeal to young readers, and decided to have them published. The stories, titled "Fly Away Free," "The Last Panther," and "The Ghost of the Dunes." are all available at xlibris.com, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com.
