Mental Measurement of Preschool Children with a Guide for the Administration of the Merrill-palmer Scale of Mental Tests By Rachel Stutsman, Ph.D. Yonkers-on-Hudson, New York: World Book Company. Pp. 368.

Review by:
Winifred Richmond

In the fields of psychology and education, the last ten years have been marked by the extension of interest in childhood to the preschool years. The development of play schools and nursery schools has proceeded rapidly, and new techniques for the study and training of little children became necessary. The psychology of infancy and early childhood was little more than a phrase ten years ago, and though it is yet far from a comprehensive kody of knowledge, the foundation has been laid, and it remains for psychology to fill out the picture.

Tn the study of the development of young children, which has formed a part of the program of practically all of the nursery schools, some method of evaluation of the child's intellectual assets and liabilities was soon found to be necessary. Training had to be suited to the child's needs, and these were often not accessible to casual observation. The techniques in use with older children had to be modified and new ones developed before any satisfactory method of studying the little folks could be obtained.
