KIRKUS REVIEW

This sound little volume comments informatively on the ways men have talked to each other from onomatopoetic phrases to modern methods. Division into chapters- on a survey of the reasons and methods of communication; on elementary means like fire or drums; on the development of printing; on America's communications history; and on the most recent and possible future methods- make it admirable to use as a supplementary text in early grades. And suggestions for projects- making your own camera or learning a foreign language are provocative.
