Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1902 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER XXIV. Mothers' Meetings, Study Clubs And Books. The Awakening Along New Lines.--A Better Brand of Mothers.--Books that Will Help Along This Line.--Mothers' Clubs as Factors.--Their Need in Cities, Villages, and Rural Communities. --A Rich Mine. A Book like this cannot enter into close details, or give minute directions; hence we have deemed it advisable to append a list of books and pamphlets which should be in every mother's library. Were every young wife to make a painstaking study of books like these with the fixed intent of preparing herself for motherhood, what a millennial day would dawn for the race. The following list (to which have been added a few others) I have copied from the library of a club of mothers, who have interested themselves in gathering the best they could find in the line of instruction and helpfulness to a wife and mother. This list may be further increased by many other helpful books, but serves as a suggestive list for those who are not conversant with such literature: The Children of The Future, _ $1.00 Nora Archibald Smith.
