    Sophie (Zoe) Benjamin (1882-1962), born in Adelaide, then studying and working in Sydney, was a trailblazer of parent and sex education and a pioneer of kindergarten education, emphasizing the importance of play in learning. In 1910 she launched the Australian Kindergarten Magazine. She was a lecturer in Psychology and Education and later vice-principal of the Sydney Kindergarten and Preparatory Teachers’ College. As well as publishing books on children and parenting, she did radio programmes for the A.B.C. This book deals with children’s behavioural problems. “Among the many subjects discussed are Sex Education, Eating and Sleeping Habits, Play and Constructive Discipline.” (from the jacket.) With a foreword by Irene Sebire.
