As Mr. Millard says in his preface, teaching pupils how to develop strong, healthy bodies should be one of the chief aims of our schools. One of the objects of his book is to convince children that certain practices are likely to make them happier and more comfortable, abler in play and work, and so lead them to regard the study of the laws of health as worth while. The author has already made a favourable impression among teachers in this country by his earlier book, “The Wonderful House that Jack Has,” and the present volume is likely to prove, useful, since it provides brightly written and well-illustrated lessons on the simple facts of human physiology and hygiene.
