Editorial Reviews

With over 125 vintage illustrations to supplement this 1894 text and an emphasis on virtues such as truth and gratitude, Kindergarten Stories and Morning Talks is sure to please as you snuggle and read about animals, nature, fairy tales, fables, and even how old-time household objects were made and chores performed.
Especially interesting are all the references to what we now call "homesteading" and the lost art of homemaking from scratch with whatever resources you have on hand at the time.

…is a quaint collection of stories arranged in a school year format geared toward your younger children.
These gentle stories will capture the attention of eager learners and the "talks" suggest ideas for hands on activities. I can picture little ones nestling on the couch with mom, ears perked and interest enticed by the child friendly nature of this collection. It provides short lessons for every week of the school year and would make a nice addition to your Kindergarten curricula.
