This antique book was copyrighted in 1898 and published by D. C. Heath & Company. It is authored by Florence Bass. Ms. Bass was a teacher, as well as the author of several nature books for children, including this one, The Child's First Book, the First Reader, Stories of Plant Life, Stories of Animal Life, and Stories of Pioneer Life. This book has a unique method for teaching reading, with the work beginning in script, because children learn more rapidly by that which they attempt to reproduce. Thus, writing may be profitably begun with the reading. One may, however, omit the script lessons and begin with the lessons in print.

The book has 110 pages, in addition to the introductory pages. It has several pages of color lithograph prings, as well as several "pen and ink" style drawn illustrations. It is a hardback book, with a cloth spine. The cover does have some damage, due to age and use. The pages are all present, with no damage, other than a few pencil marks and a small tear on the very last fly page in the back. The book is just over 6" tall and 5" wide. Please let me know if you have questions about this book. **Orders totaling $35 or more will be shipped with Signature Confirmation.
