Children from 5 to 13 are alike in many ways but different in many more. Dr. Josephine Foster tells what to expect from such children in general, then describes the countless variations in the physical, intellectual, emotional, and social make-up of the individual. She points out the importance of studying the child's interests, habits, health, and home, as well as friend groups and abilities. Her plea to the teacher is to take their pupils as they are, try to understand them, and then help them to grow, each in his or her own way. She offers sound, easy-to-follow steps for attaining these ends.
