Product Overview

Every year two million people are accidentally poisoned by something they encounter in or around the house, and more than half of them are children. While most parents know to keep medicines, cleansers, and anti-freeze safely locked away, many are not aware of other potential hazards, like freshly cut azaleas, daffodil bulbs, or the takeout Chinese food left sitting on the counter. "Deadly Daffodils, Toxic Caterpillars" is the first consumer guide to identifying household poisons, as well as preventing and treating accidental poisoning.
More than 150 common and uncommon substances are identified -- from medications to mushrooms, morning glories to daylilies, leftovers to alcohol, caterpillars to spiders. This easy-access guide offers all the information you need to keep your family safe from hazards, and explains clearly how to take effective action should an accident occur. It even includes a section on safety for household pets.
The first ever single-volume, all-inclusive book on poisons written for family use, "Deadly Daffodils, Toxic Caterpillars" belongs in every home. This important -- and potentially lifesaving -- book should be required reading for parents, school nurses, teachers, and administrators, as well as camp counselors, babysitters, and other child-care workers.
