"I am a nursing student and enjoy reading these types of books so that I can have a deeper understanding of the causes and treatments. This one interested me a great deal because I myself had to wear casts when I was younger, though I have no recollection of it. The author goes to great lengths to explain everything in a way that is easy to understand. I also like the resources that she provides so that parents will have a plethora of information already found for them; all they have to do is go to whatever website that they find interesting from the list. A must read for anyone who has a child with clubfoot."

"This is a great guide for parents. It explains the Ponseti method of treatment and goes through each step in the process. The book describes the health care personell whom are invoved in the treatment process, and clearly explains what each person does. The book gives lots of helpful hints on all aspects of caring for a child being treated for clubfoot: from diaper changes to playing. It gives a good description of the braces that are used and how they work, as well as information about the types available and where to get them."

Throughout the book, there are anecdotes from parents who have had a child with clubfoot. It is reassuring to read what other parents have done and their suggestions and supportive comments.
The book gives lots of helpful hints on all aspects of caring for a child being treated for clubfoot: from diaper changes to playing. It gives a good description of the braces that are used and how they work, as well as information about the types available and where to get them.
There are also support groups listed. It is a very complete resource for parents of children being treated with the Ponseti method for clubfoot.
I recommend this book for anyone who wants to know more about clubfoot or who has a child who has it.
