But there's one sort of fun everybody approves of and everybody gets excited over, and that's Paramount-Artcraft.
Some pictures. Enough to keep a fellow talking about them for days.
Jules Verne and pirate books aren't a circumstance to Paramount-Artcraft.
One's just telling about things, and the other's doing them!

GOOD BOOKS YOUNG
OUNGSTERS love to hear about the doings of other children. Reading of the ad
ventures kiddies have had in by-gone days!-why, it's as real as if the experiences were their own. In the Little Folks Series published by THE ABINGDON PRESS the stories are told as well as any Mother could tell them, and it's very much easier for Mother to read than to make up tales. Other interesting ABINGDON books for children and for grown-ups are described in a catalog-sent on request.
LITTLE FOLKS IN HISTORY (In four books)
By DOROTHY DONNELL CALHOUN “Not many know the story of the boy leader of the children's crusade, Stephen of Cloys. The 'boy who stood on the burning deck’ is a little more familiar, and the story of Casabianca is finely told. Jacqueline, the bravest little maid of Holland, and Pocahontas share equal honors among the heroines whose deeds are recounted. The Little Queen of Scotland, Mary Stuart, and Edward VI, the little white King, are two of the royal babies told of; and Mozart, Audubon, Nightingale, James Watt and Helen Keller are the little folks who did great things.' -Leader-Republican, Gloversville, New York.
LITTLE FOLKS OF THE BIBLE (In four books)
By DOROTHY DONNELL CALHOUN These delightful stories differ from other Bible narratives in that they are not the tales of great deeds or of great heroes of the Bible, but of real children for real children to read. The old characters come before us like modern young people, and the scenes in which they played a part are made vivid by descriptions and incidental allusions possible only to an accomplished writer. “Little Folks of the Bible presents the familiar child characters of the book. The stories are told in appropriate tone. The entire collection may be warmly commended.”—The New York Evening Post.
A Stirring Story of the Sea in War-Time
