Here is another book on the mental training of the child. The author is competent, his ideas are sound, he states them succinctly and he uses a part of his book to answer all the usual questions that are asked by inquiring mothers. During the last year there has been a veritable deluge of works of this character. The book by Dr. Pyle is as good as most and better than some. The outstanding book in the field is a book by Thom called "Everyday Problems of the Everyday Child." Pyle and every author who has written on the subject since Thom's book appeared refers again and again to Thom's book. Why not then begin by Thom's book?
