Review by:
Barbara Low

There can be no doubt that in the near future psycho-analytic research will employ itself to a large and ever larger extent over educational problems, from which research we may look forward to the establishment of some valid educational principles, so sorely needed in present-day education. Freud, with others who have followed up his work, has emphasized the value of the analyst-educator, who will be able to get into closer contact, perhaps, with the child-mind than anyone else can, and has indicated how valuable such an educator's work may be if he has the requisite knowledge for study of the Unconscious. Since he has shown us "the royal road to the Unconscious", in the shape of the dream, it behoves the educator to take cognizance of the child's dreams and to acquire, if possible, some understanding of them.

For this purpose, the volume of "Childrens Dreams" compiled by Dr. Kimmins, is of value to the analyst who may not have opportunity to make any wide collection for himself, but yet desires as much firsthand material as possible.
