Summary "It is a privilege to introduce to those unacquainted with it one aspect of the work of the Federation for Child Study. Of all the organizations which have sought to stimulate parents to study and know their children, the Federation has had probably the most experience. For over a score of years its leaders have been guiding the reading and discussion of groups of parents and teachers, but especially of parents. Upon their experience are based these Outlines of Child Study. The arrangement is topical; and each topic is presented by (1) a statement of the general state of knowledge of the topic, (2) an outline which lists the detailed facts and problems concerning which there is information available, and (3) a list of helpfully graded references, ranging from attractive popular articles to technical monographs. The treatment is comprehensive, both in the topics chosen and in the outline and references for each. Especially valuable are the sections on concrete aspects of human behavior, such as Toys, Manners, The Use of Money, Pets and Plants, and Hobbies, which the ordinary manuals of Child Study have relatively neglected. The treatment is modern; mental tests, psycho-analysis and the conditioned reflex receiving due (some conservative critics may think, undue) attention, and recent work in all lines being considered. Suitable connections with the general sciences of human nature are made so that the student who follows the Outlines for any dozen or so of topics is almost certain to be made acquainted with representative scientific work in biology, psychology and sociology"--Introduction.
