Appearing for the first time in English, Educating a Child: The Art of Arts by Father Joseph Duhr is a must-read for all parents and educators who want to understand the role they must play as God's co-operators in the education of children.

In this first volume (of two), Father Duhr begins by laying out the goal of education, which is to gradually form the child physically, intellectually and morally, teaching him to master his instincts and passions, so that he will one day be capable of leading himself. Ultimately, it is to establish God as Master and King in this soul which was created by Him for His Greater Glory and destined to find its happiness and perfection in possessing Him.

Having laid the foundations, Father then describes the family atmosphere which is favorable to the blossoming of the child. Finally, he looks at authority, its origin and purpose, and how to use it in order to bring the child to what God wants him to be.

Like every good teacher, Father Duhr knows how to make his subject matter palatable, while not watering it down in any way. He constantly illustrates his points with beautiful and entertaining stories from the real lives of parents and children, some famous (like Saint Augustine, George Washington, Daniel O'Connell, Frédéric Ozanam, Louis Pasteur and Anne de Guigné) and others not so famous. In our opinion, this book is an indispensable tool for all parents and educators and is destined to become a classic in the English language.
