In the circumstances it was natural that I should become interested in education. I had already written briefly on the subject in Principles of Social Reconstruction, but now it occupied a large part of my mind. I wrote a book, On Education, Especially in Early Childhood, which was published in 1926 and had a very large sale. It seems to me now somewhat unduly optimistic in its psychology, but as regards values I find nothing in it to recant, although I think now that the methods I proposed with very young children were unduly harsh.
