Spare the Rod?

God, the Rod and Your Child’s Bod
The Art of Loving Correction for Christian Parents
Tomczak
1982

Life is bad and children are out of control, but with a handy stick, you can beat the crap out of them. Really.

Evidently the corrupt world (probably the fault of divorcees, selfish mothers, feminists and gays) is causing your children to become undiciplined monsters. But you can get a stick and beat your kids into good behavior. It’s okay because you do it with love.

I will be in the back weeping for humanity,

Mary

Read My Lips

 

Visual Communication for the Hard of Hearing
O’Neill and Oyer
1961

Submitter: This is a 1961 book about lip reading. It offers an interesting history on the topic in one chapter. It was pretty fascinating. But the other chapters are talking about resources you could get to help with the teaching of lip reading. Being over 50 years old, I would think it would be hard to find those listed books and films. If you even wanted too?

Holly: Old, boring, and irrelevant. That’s a trifecta for weeding. I sincerely hope this was found in a university library (from which it should still probably be weeded…), but WorldCat shows holdings in some public libraries and community colleges too. I can’t even begin to imagine why.

The Retarded Reader


Understanding and Helping the Retarded Reader
Strang
1965

Submitter: My local library has a small section on education help. Here is an ancient book from the proceedings of a conference on reading problems held in 1962. Scholarly, and not much help to a public patron who might be dealing with this issue.

Holly: This is in a public library? Whyyyyy?
