The Engineer of Beaver Brook. By Allen Chaffee. Illustrated by Paul Bramson. For children of six to twelve years. Springfield, Mass.: The Milton Bradley Company. This is one of the most beautiful, interesting and instructive books on animal life that has been brought within the limit of age and price ($1.50) that has come to our desk. Brownie is the Utah beaver, whose habits his present biographer has studied first hand. He is the engineer of forest and waterway, changing, through his marvelous industry and genius, the topography of the country he inhabits as our own roads and cities are undergoing transformation for the needs of a changing civilization. This thought gives Brownie's story an important place in child literature, but the book has an even closer touch, through its theme of constructive energy, with the instincts of the child. The mud and boughs, the patient, painstaking craft of, the beaver are duplicated in the clay, wood and other manipulative materials with which children build their house of life in the early years. Lea; rning of the difficulties, hazards and ultimate success of this amazing little dumb artisan will give children inspiration and courage for I heir handicraft. legger's concoction that made his hand shake. So we have sometimes feared that it was a philosophic earthquake rather than the fascination of John Dewey's thinking that was confusing me. Here is one of John Dewey's conventionalities that saves his personality from individuality: "Man needs the cartb in order to walk, the sea to swi.n or sail, the air to fly." No one can cut the string of his kite and flop in individualism who realizes the need of earth, water and air. Unquestionably "Experience and Nature" is John Dewey's most masterful production. It is the book that every one should read who has ever had any question as \0 safe and sane personality of the most fascinating writer in philosophy today. MANUAL TO ACCOMPANY THE STUDY READERS. By Albert Walker and Mary R. Parkman, both of Washington, D. c., Normal School. Paper. 269 pages. New York and Chicago: Charles E. Merrill Company. One important characteristic of the modern school is the help the teacher receives from Manuals, especially for the school readers. The Merrill Company Manual has the latest suggestions, especially for promoting efficiency in silent reading. This Manual is in five parts. As a whole this Manual is a good professional course in the teaching of reading. There is all too little appreciation of the professional education that all teachers get while in service. No teacher can fail to deserve "professional credits" while teaching. School work today is a school for the teacher. No teacher can by any possibility in a modem school system, in the elementary years, teach any subject as she taught it five years ago, and in some subject she must teach it differently from what she taught it the year before. This Manual has several important new features whieh stimulate professional progressive activity on the part of tile teacher. THINKERS AND DOERS. By Floyd L. Darrow, Cloth. 378 pages. Illustrated.
