Summary "This book has two purposes: first, to pack into the smallest possible compass a compendium of information about childhood, and, second, to give parents the most practical answers to the thousand-and-one problems of bringing up children. It is a dictionary of child life and an encyclopedia of child training. Part One consists of Outlines of Child Life, a summary of the best that is known about childhood, condensed from the best authorities. These summaries are presented partly in the form of graphic charts and partly in terse statements, often numbered for ease in remembering. Each summary closes with a special list of books for further reading. Part Two opens with a Chart of Parenthood. It consists mainly of several hundred answers to the questions that parents most frequently ask as they meet their daily problems in the home. For those who will go more thoroughly into their work, the best books for parents are listed and described, the organizations that help the homes are named and defined, and parents who wish to study together are shown how to organize and what to study. There are abundant cross-references between the two parts of the book. The main captions stand out in clear black type, the answers for parents are arranged in alphabetical order, and the unusually full index brings to light all the treasures of the volume. The volume is intended of course for reference rather than for consecutive reading. For this it is hoped that it may find a helpful place in the daily life of thousands of American homes"--Book.
