Papers for Teachers says— They are charmingly written.'

HUGHES'S STANDARD STORY-BOOKS.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.

THE SCHOOLMASTER says-

Admirable in every respect. The books are strongly and attractively

bound, and possess the additional recommendation of cheapness.

They only require to be known to be appreciated.' THE TEACHER says

Well printed and prettily illustrated, and have not a dull line within

their bright covers. It would need a very unskilful teacher to make little ones, with these “ Stories" in their hands, look upon

the reading lesson as a task, or as anything but a pleasure.' THE SCHOOL GUARDIAN says

'Just the sort of book to make a child try to read it for the amusement

it affords. The point of all the tales is to teach kindness to animals--a most necessary lesson for young children, which could

not be better enforced than it is here." THE SCHOOL BOARD CHRONICLE says

“They can hardly fail to be favourite reading with the little ones.' THE EDUCATIONAL NEWS (Scotland) says

Mrs. Greenup has here given us exactly such a book as an intelligent

child would choose for its own reading.' THE SCHOOL & UNIVERSITY MAGAZINE says

*Deserves our highest commendation, and we unconditionally accord

it to them.' THE IRISH TEACHERS' JOURNAL says

So far as we can judge, the series is certain to command an extensive

sale, as being among the best “Readers” that have appeared.' THE BLACKPOOL GAZETTE says

The arrangement of the subjects, the letterpress, and the illustrations

are all excellent, and the whole issue is admirable.' THE TEACHERS' ASSISTANT & STUDENTS' MAGAZINE says

'Not only suitable language, but suitable thoughts and subjects are

pressed into the service, if we may so say; and the result is storybooks which children as soon as they begin to read at all will love

to read on every opportunity.' THE JOURNAL OF EDUCATION says

'These reading-books are marvels of cheapness. The selection of

poetry seems to us particularly happy.' THE KELSO MAIL (Scotland) says

“This set of school books is perhaps the best calculated to awaken and

sustain the interest of children that has ever come under our notice.' THE SCHOLASTIC WORLD says

'Sure to become popular both for home and school reading.' THE EDUCATIONAL CHRONICLE says

"The arrangement and construction of these books have been carried

out with the utmost care. Indeed, we consider Stories for Infants one of the most successful attempts to produce a simple reading; book for very young children that it has been our privilege to see.'

In this book—the last of the series—it has been thought well to introduce the young reader to some of the best authors in our language. For this purpose extracts from acknowledged English writers have been largely used ; and the Editor would here express his obligation to the various authors and publishers who have kindly allowed him the privilege of using these extracts. There are, however, many stories in this volume which are 'not to be found in any of the books.'

The spellings at the head of each lesson have been retained, but the practice of dividing them into syllables was thought hardly necessary for boys and girls who can read this book.
