Infant and Child in the Culture of Today by Arnold Gesell and Frances Ilg
Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1943. Harper & Brothers.
This is a popularized practical version of the Yale experience with an interpretation of child development and nursery guidance. The book is devoted to children of pre-school age, whose behavior profiles are presented in generic terms with informal discussion of the specific daily variations. This is not a book of dogmatic concepts or bolstered theory, but a carefully planned presentation of the factual experience of the authors and their appreciation of the frequency of specific variations in behavior. Concrete suggestions for guidance are occasionally made but, in general, the context and arrangement of data merely place growth and development in social as well as biological perspective
