The Church: The Gifted and Retarded Child
Given the date of this publication I am impressed that someone was actually addressing special needs children. Although this book might be important in a religious education collection, it really doesn’t belong on a public library shelf for the typical library customer.
Another ALB spy sent this lovely book to us. Think of it as a companion title to the crafts book! Thankfully, it has been weeded from the collection. Last time I checked WorldCat, this book was in university collections and a few large public libraries, which is probably appropriate for this title. I also must confess it took me quite a while to realize that is some kind of bird on the cover.
Some librarian spies from the west sent along this wonderful title to ALB. I am not quite sure of the craft on the front, but the spies sent along a page featuring this ultra cool Indian tom-tom craft. A quote from the cover blurb: “This book is written primarily for teachers and for parents whose youngsters have come into the world with less potential than the so-called ‘average’ child.” Submitters say: “What better way to raise a child’s potential than by teaching him or her to stretch a goat skin to make a drum, then paint swastikas on it?”
