Children's Books and Contemporary Imperatives: A School of Non-So-Hard Knocks.
Douglass, Joseph H.
The speaker challenges his audience to devise imaginative and effective means of obtaining for children ready-access to books that will help them develop an image of the future worthy of the previously undreamed-of capability, health, and welfare enjoyed at the present time. It is up to the present generation, he says, to help children achieve the kind of manhood and the kind of world they desire. The special relationship between a child and literature is described as one which fosters awareness. The child should not be shielded from knowledge but must have free access to opportunity. (NH)
