ABSTRACT
The article presents information about some books related to children health and hygiene across the world. It refers a book which has been published by the United Nations Educational and Cultural Organization and has been named as "The Present Situation and Trends of Research in the Field of Special Education." The areas which are covered in the book are: the Scandinavian countries, United States and the Latin American countries, particularly Uruguay. In the preface of this book special education is defined as handling children and young people with learning difficulties caused by visual, hearing, motor or mental handicaps. The book is a fine one in as much as it is "content" or "substance" oriented in its approach to research and services. It does not emphasize administrative set-ups. Although no single study is described at great length, very often details are given. Hence, the book is not superficial. It does its purported job quite well. It offers brief but precise and sensible definitions of many of the terms and concepts likely to be encountered in the field of learning handicaps. The article further informs about a book named "The Learning Incorporated Dictionary of Learning Handicaps."
