They aim to emphasize the attractiveness of life in the country and to add to its charm by awakening an intelligent interest in its many activities. …The stories relating to lumber, coal and iron, and the industries to which they give rise, are scattered among the farm stories to lend variety to the themes and to give the child a broader view of industrial life.”
