Awakening to Child Health is a resource for developing a sensitive understanding of children. It is a resource for childcare professionals and parents who wish to follow their own intuition and sensibility for children's health.

The book addresses such questions as: How can we deepen our insights regarding children through personal experience? How can we better nurture, protect, and enhance our children's well being and care?
