For schoolhouse hygiene we have, for some time, had a number of fairly serviceable texts, but of books relating to child development and the hygiene of instruction we have had but little in any form that teachers could use. Only recently may we be said to have come into the possession of such knowledge, and most of it is still locked up in medical and psychological journals and books.The following treatise on the Hygiene of the School Child is an attempt to digest and interpret this recently accumulated knowledge, and to place it in usable form. The book might have been called, with almost equal propriety, a treatise on the Hygiene of Growth, dealing, as it does, so largely with the fundamental facts of a childs physical development. In a companion volume, to be published later, the author will continue his interpretations by setting forth the relation of mental hygiene to the work of the school.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
