"Much of this little book is the result of one year's work in a first grade. The pupils were led to express the thoughts which were suggested by the specimens brought into class.
Many of the illustrations were made in color. Many of the sentences are in the pupil's language. These lessons are intended to be used for supplementary reading in the second half of the first year."
