Those who have read A Montessori Mother, by the same author, will need no assurance that Mrs. Fisher has something interesting to say concerning mothers and children. She takes up the subject under five headings, The Background of our Children's Lives, Obedience, The Scientific Spirit for Mothers, On Joining the Older Generation, Maternity no Longer a Position for Life, and there are many sensible thoughts not only on the subject, of the training of children, but on the development of the mother herself, for, as the author says, "Maternity is not the occupation of a lifetime," and the individuality of the mother must not be sacrificed. She even suggests the question, "How can we keep, throughout the years of the distractingly absorbing demands of little children, enough of our own individuality for us to live with, when they are paddling their own canoes in waters strange to us?'' It is all written in a simple, entertaining style, and we strongly recommend her "homely essays" to mothers and to everyone who comes in contact with children.
