Child psychology by Arthur T Jersild( Book )
118 editions published between 1933 and 1975 in 3 languages and held by 3,083 libraries worldwide
"In this edition I have tried to bring the 1940 version up to date, and I have tried also to remedy certain shortcomings in the old text while preserving qualities that were well received. The present text takes more adequate account of the interplay between forces in the growing organism and the impact of various aspects of development upon each other. The present edition also draws more attention than did its predecessor to the question as to what a child's overt behavior reveals about his private thoughts and feelings. More consideration is also given to the influence of the cultural environment and the attitudes of others on a child's behavior and adjustment. More prominence has been given to principles and generalizations, but in this edition, as in the preceding ones, I have cited freely from the research literature in presenting generalizations as well as supporting details"--Preface.

Training and growth in the development of children; a study of the relative influence of learning and maturation by Arthur T Jersild( Book )
7 editions published in 1932 in English and held by 173 libraries worldwide
"The primary concern of any practitioner who deals with children is to understand the factors that determine the development of children. These factors can be divided into those which are inherent in the organic make-up of the individual and those which surround but are outside him. The interaction of these two, heredity and environment, constitute the determiners of individual development. Scientific study in all areas is constantly at work endeavoring to understand how this interaction takes place and how much each group of factors (inherited or environmental) determine development. Thus, medicine studies physiological functioning and disease; nutritionists study food composition and metabolism; the psychologist and educator study learning and maturation. The series of studies reported in this monograph were undertaken in an effort to contribute to our understanding of the role of training or practice in relation to maturation in determining the ability of children. The peculiar merits of the studies in this monograph lie in the fact that seven different performances were studied under similar experimental conditions with more than two hundred children, ranging in age from two to eleven years. This similarity of procedure has made possible comparisons of the relative influence of training and maturation on such widely differing performances as color naming, tapping, and singing. They indicate types of activities wherein training and guidance are effective at certain ages and other types of activity where training seems ineffective"--Foreword.
