KIRKUS REVIEW

Report repeated from the March 15th bulletin when scheduled for earlier publication- as follows: By a professional in this field, the author of Growing Together (Appleton-Century) etc., this is angled to the attitudes of this generation and contributes both the theory behind and some practical suggestions for the handling of your child ""At Home, In School and At Play"". The fundamental social drives and early emotional patterns which direct the child from infancy on, first towards contacts with his parents- then his friends; the first playmates; parties (and the games and foods advisable at different age levels); trips and excursions; playrooms (the materials and equipment most valuable); nursery schools and play groups, and the reasons which should determine your selection of either a nursery school or a play group based on the needs of the parent or the child; parents' cooperative groups, if you have no nursery school to call on, how these may be formed and the problems to expect. And finally, the skills and attitudes learned in playing, and the value of a constructive, creative discipline. One phase, if a prominent, pervasive one, of child-rearing- this is sound and suggestive, but one questions how many parents will purchase a book limited to one aspect.
