|Continues with folk and fairy stories, and introduces the wonder tale, which becomes the dominant note, while the fable gives place to more extended and more modern animal stories. The poetry begins with the group from Stevenson, whom the children have already learned to enjoy. Then follow selections from Lydia Maria Child, Lucy Larcom, Eugene Field, and a score of others dealing mainly with children's interests in animals and other forms of nature. With this series of books, besides merely learning to read, the child has the joy of reading the best in the language, and he is forming his taste for all subsequent reading. Ages 8-9|
