KIRKUS REVIEW

A documentary of children's problems, in their own words, with an interpretation by Helen Parkhurst, an experienced educator, who instituted the idea of having a group of children speak spontaneously on certain subjects, which was eventually developed into a nationwide radio program. Here you will find what children feel about discipline and corrective methods, stealing, lying, winning and losing, anger, worry, sex, conscience, death, God, prejudice, and their parents and their teachers. Source material, of direct derivation, which deals with timeless worries, fears, concerns, this has a real interest and application for parents and teachers and communicates the candid world of childhood.
