Abstract: Television, a new form of communication, has come into the homes of many of our American families. It offers entertainment through sight as well as sound. We accept it readily. The preschool child who usually spends much of his time in the home with little planned activity has become an ardent television fan. Hours formerly spent in play are now spent viewing television. How will this affect children? How can we use television to the best advantage for preschool viewers?
