The present exhibition has been organised in connection with "Boys' and Girls' Book Week" promoted by the National Book Council, to be held from November 7th to 12th.
The books, as distinguished from educational works, that have been especially prepared for youthful Britons, of both sexes may be roughly divided into seven main groups: books with a moral; books about animals; books of fun; fairy tales; stories of real life; stories of adventure; picture books.
