KIRKUS REVIEW

A splendid, eminently usable book, intended for teachers, but valuable for parents too -- on how to release the creative impulse in children. The author, a teacher in the Los Angeles public school system, obtained remarkable results with her pupils in painting, clay work, block printing, rhythmic dancing and creative writing. The book is especially practical, and comforting, in that it shows how and why encouragement and sympathy, rather than special knowledge of arts and crafts, are the important factors in teaching children to create.
