This volume is evidence of a healthy trend in present day education. In the preface the author states that the book was written at the request of teachers the country over for a guide to sex education in the schools. Accordingly, it is written so as to offer a long range program, embracing all the grades from the primary to junior and senior high school, with the material arranged and adapted to the expanding sex interest of children from the early years to adolescence.

Throughout the book the author emphasizes both the biologic and the psychobiologic aspects of sexual development and is as much concerned with the dynamics of social and emotional growth as with reproduction. Many practical suggestions are outlined in chapters devoted to methods of gaining community support, matters of organization, family relations, and technics in sex teaching. Special chapters are devoted to the organization of sex guidance
