Abstract

A random sampling of fifty home libraries was made in a city of 6,000 population. The mothers were interviewed in their homes, and their libraries were examined by a person trained in library science and child study. Emphasis is given to the child development materials found in the homes, including child study books and magazines, and children's books and magazines. The evaluation of the reading materials is both quantitative and qualitative. Results are tabulated according to nativity of parents, occupational class, educational status of parents, and number of children in the family. Large charts present the core of the results in a graphic manner.
