Is he picking up the comics instead? And you had so carefully selected his books, hoping to encourage good reading habits! Perhaps you agree with the noted educator who said, "Good reading habits are not developed by giving a child a book on all occasions.' This is different from the way we have heard it before, isn't it? But this man also said, "Good reading habits are developed in homes where the parent shares the reading interests of the child." Have you time to share your child's reading? Have you patience? Sharing does not mean scolding at him to read. It means that we are willing to read some of the things he reads and are interested in talking them over with him. It means that we understand his boyish enthusinasm and her dreamy wistfulness for romantic adventure. It means that we express our sympathy, our disapproval or approval of the heroes and deeds in the story. Our opinions will be based upon experience, mixed with our understanding of the child's eager longing. We should allow him to express his opinion also. This is sharing. This should awaken the child's interest in better reading. Sharing also draws parent and child close together. Have you patience to spend time on a juvenile's story? You will be surprised at the not so juvenile things they will read if you are en joying books with them. To your surprise, sharing will not take as much patience as you at first suppose. You will find that you actuallj' enjoy reading with your child. To your surprise, you will find yourself learning from his comments made out of his child- wisdom. Perhaps you will learn as much from him as he learns from you! Sharing in your child's reading interests may turn your patience into pleasure.

Case IwphiMHrti Telephone No. l |f .j rosrvnxE, KWA . Kathleen Pixler of Luana has been a visitor in the home of her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Will Schave, the past week. Mrs. Valder Meyer and her mother, Mrs. Ellen Wangsness, of^Calmar, went to Iowa City on Tuesday to visit Valder Meyer, a patient at the University Hospital. Everett Schultz was elected mayor of Castalia at last Monday's town election to succeed Fred W. Dahms who declined to run. Others elected were Mrs. Hazel Stee, treasurer; Oran Brandt, Lafe Lampman, Harry Larkin, Harvey Reinhardt and Gus Drebenstedt, councilmen. Sunday evening relatives surprised Mr. and Mrs. Ray Schara by dropping in "lor a picnic supper Those present were^lr. and Mrs. W. H. Schweinefus and Wayne of Ossian; Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Monroe. Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Schultz and Linda, Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Stee, Mr. and Mrs.'Edwin Engelhardt and family, Mr. and Mrs, Harlan Stee and family, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Brandt, Mr. and Mrs, Merle Stee and Mary, Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Stee and daughters, Mr and Mrs. Herbert Stee and family, Helmer Hegiand, Mrs. Lena Perry, Louis Kamp and Charles Schultz. SELF HELP IN DRESSING. "I do it mine own self," protested two year old Bob. So he pulled back from his mother who was buttoning up his coat, and struggled with the buttons. He mastered the first two before he grew tired and gave up. Now Bob's mother could scold him. She could yank him back and order him to stand still while she buttons his coat. She could dis courage him. from learning self help. At the moment she could save considerable time for herself. But how about in later years when she will want Bob to do things for himself? Will she be saying, "You are big enough to do better than that." At ten will say she say, "Bob just isn't dependable. He has no confidence in himself. He won't try." Small children like to try to dress themselves. Their interest in handling buttons and zippers and snow suit buckles stimulates their training in self help. Self help means growth in self reliance. It means a more independent child and a more secure child. It also means a patient parent who can wait while the child learns to help himself. Many modern designers of children's clothes take into account the child's need for self help in dressing. They -design clothes with large buttons for small fingers to manage. There are only a few buttons and these are placed where the child can reach them. Tiny buttons down the back are out for that new look in a little girl's dress. Small boys' suits are planned with fewer and larger buttons. Elastic bands make buttons unnecessary in many garments. Zippers are great fun when children are allowed to do^the zipping. Simple clothing which the 2 to 4 year old can manage by himself is a great aid to self help and self reliance. / Sell it through a Herald Want Ad.
