DAYS WITHUNCLE JACK
FOR FIFTH YEAR PUPILS
In this book Ben, Belle, and May, with their parents, take an extended vacation trip under the guidance of Uncle Jack-- a retired naval officer-in which they visit some of the most famous literary and historical shrines in the Eastern States and in Canada. By this method, it has been possible to introduce, in a wonderfully natural way, many of the classic poems of American literature. The text is further enchanced by a number of very unusual photographs.
This Reader, to a greater degree than any other, is designed to foster intelligent patriotism, and to inspire an appreciation of, and a reverence for, the fundamental principles upon which this republic was founded. Moreover, it should prove a powerful aid in helping to weld into homogeneity with American ideals and traditions the foreign-born children and those of alien parentage which form so large a proportion of our City Schools.
The attention of the teacher is earnestly invited to some suggestions for Phonic Work to be found on and after pages 419 of this book.
