The Natural Development of the Child: By Agatha Bowley. (E. and S. Livingstone, Edinburgh, 1942. Pp. 172. Price, 8 s. 6 d.)

Review by:
Helen Sheehan-Dare

This admirable little book, comprehensive for its size, simply written, and illustrated by charming photographs, is a welcome addition to the already rather extensive literature on the subject. It sets forth briefly the main stages in the child's social and psychological development, together with the besetting difficulties of each stage, and is packed with practical wisdom for application to childhood's problems. The section on enuresis, p. 130, provides a possible exception to this unqualified recommendation.

Miss Bowley has gleaned the best she can find from the research of other authorities and added much from her own experience. The book is short and easily read and should be invaluable to parents, teachers and all those interested in child psychology or in social relationships and problems, for the latter are here seen to be inevitably based on the psychological development of the child.
