    Bad The themes in the book are interesting enough, but it is basically a collection of petite case studies I expected in depth philosophical discussions on the meaning of childhood.Good Since the material world surrounding children is familiar for everyone, assigning some chapters in undergraduate classes might be useful to make them interested in historical questioning and method of research.
