Front inside the cover page: A Word to Parents about this Volume: The stories and poems, as well as the illustrations, have been selected because they provide wholesome fare for the child with an insatiable appetite for reading. And even more to their credit, perhaps, is their appeal to children who do not naturally take to reading.

There is such variety of material here that even the most uninterested child is sure to be intrigued by something in the book. The Aesop’s Fables, with which the book opens, are short so as not to stain the child’s attention. They are told in simple words.

The next section, Cheerful Tales and Verse, contains many humorous selections especially chosen to appeal to the funny-bone of young children. The same is true of the later humorous section, Fun and Laughter. The Poems for Pleasure will endear themselves particularly to the sensitive child.

All children of this early reading age will love the Animal Stories. Children in America Then and Now provides the child with stories of life in America all the way from Indian days to the space-ship era of today.

Here are many of the fundamentals of life in America all presented in the form of stories so that children will absorb the facts with interest. The child who has this volume for his/her own to browse through will indeed have before them many happy hours of storyland reading.

This book is wonderfully written, illustrated and is an excellent addition for the home library and avid book collector! & white illustrations throughout great for framing, crafting.

Excellent addition for the avid reader and children’s book collector!


Thank You for shopping with me and have a victorious day!
