Excerpt from Heart of Youth: Young People's Poems, Gay and Grave The time has passed when the child mmd was a re gion unexplored and the child brain regarded as a semi-inert mass to be awakened to activity only by the passage of a decade or more. Fifty years ago no one asked questions concerning a seven - year-old intellect or a six-year-old imagination. Crude images of animals or inanimate objects were given to young things as playthings, occasional books bound in blue or scarlet and gold ornamented with almost savagely primitive illustrations were pre sented to them on rare birthdays or Christmas mornings. The child who was found furtively and pathetically for there was pathos in it reading volumes intended for the perusal of its elders, was regarded as an abnormality and a persistent dis play of interest in such literature aroused doubts of health and safety.
