Contes et l gendes (French)by H A. Guerber
This little collection of Legends and Fairy Tales is intended merely as an introduction to general French reading. The stories have been told as simply as possible, with infinite repetition of the same words and idioms to enable the pupil to obtain a good vocabulary almost unconsciously. They have also been narrated as graphically as practicable to arouse an interest in the plot, to stimulate curiosity, and thereby induce the pupil to read to the end.
With the exception of the first tale of the series, for which I have purposely selected the common nursery story, "The Three Bears," I have carefully avoided the tales which are most familiar, or have given them in some unusual version, so that only by knowing the meaning of the words the sense of the story can be obtained.
This method has been used with most gratifying results with pupils of all ages either with or without the accompaniment of a grammar, and it is very gradual, to facilitate rapid progress in the language.
