KIRKUS REVIEW

Housekeeping hints for the interested, these include chapters on cleaning, laundering, home nursing, baby sitting, cooking, entertaining and etiquette. Within a small space the basic principles for each are adequately given. For example, the chapter on cleaning stresses the importance of scheduling and efficiency which together with practical rules of essentials like bed making, sweeping, dish washing, give solid grounding in the principles of house care. The same holds true for the other topics which show cumulatively that housekeeping does become a full time job requiring skill and patience when one has the desire and ambition to ta it thoroughly. But that every girl should, which is the supposition here, remains a debatable question.
