This is a fascinating compilation of children's drawings through which normal and abnormal development can be studied.

The book is divided into 2 sections. The first section, "The Usual and the Normative," discusses the normal developmental process that occurs in children, from simple scribbling to drawing human forms. Chapters include the following: "Earliest Drawings: The Kinesthetic Stage," "Transition from Kinesthetic to Representational Drawing," "Representational Not Reproduction," and "The Human Figure Evolves."
