This guide book was originally published in April 1929. It describes the mental development of the infant until the age of 6 and includes chapters on the norms of development, some answers to problems, and playthings. On one page the author epitomizes fifteen important don'ts for parents. References are classified describing the general facts of development therapy and practice in education and biology. The language is simple and the material authoritative. This little volume lends itself well as an elementary textbook for child study groups and can be recommended for teachers and pediatricians interested in child development.
