KIRKUS REVIEW

A pleasantly informal commentary on the variants of child development for the parent at large, which will serve as an overall orientation rather than a direct diagram of procedure. A contributor to Parents' Magazine and the author of some Public Affairs pamphlets, Hymes writes popularly rather than profoundly, concentrates on attitudes and approaches. The child's drive to grow and learn, and the incentive to imitate; his spotty patterns of development; the emotional climate of faith and security and affection he demands; his environment, language, shifting interests; etc., etc.-this guides- rather than graphs- the way to an understanding which is flexible, sympathetic. Peripheral-rather than fundamental- parent counsel.
