The great festivals of the year, the days set apart for the promotion of patriotism and the birthdays of our countrys most noted men are emphasized by stories, descriptions and poems.Stories, both old and new, furnish variety and awaken interest. The pleasures and experiences of the four children with whom the little readers of the First Reader have become acquainted appeal to the universal interest in a continued narrative. These stories of happy child life suggest amusements and games for the home and present in a natural manner the ethical ideas of kindness and unselfish giving.This book, like the first book of the same series, is written in accordance with the belief that a childs reading should increase his observation and love of nature as well as awaken a love for books. Both directly and indirectly many of the lessons supplement nature study and suggest appropriate language exercises.To the authors and publishers who have kindly granted the use of their beautiful selections, most grateful acknowledgments are rendered.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
