As I Once Was.
A few generations ago there was no
distinctive literature for boys and girls,
the "masterpiece only" theory was in
force by virtue of necessity, and the

this generation when every child looms
jinto the importance of an individual,
jit is desired not only that the fittest
may survive, but that the many may be
made fit. To this end, various and
learnest have been the efforts to bring
.within the range of every child "this
fair and wholesome pasturage." That

to be settled just why the old woman
with her broom, little Miss Muffit, the
dish running away with the spoon, and
all the rest of it. are so facinatmg and
dramatic, is still one of the hidden
secrets of childhood. et after all
has been said, I think it harks back to
their jingle^a nd to a certain delicious
absence of sense and reason. But
whatever the source of their popularity
children have continued to cling to
them with a largeness of love ever
since the Newberys published them in
1765. This early edition, called
Melodies of Mother Goose, is out of
print, but there has recently been re
printed in fac-simile the Munroe &
Francis edition with an introduction by
Edward Everett Hale, which includes
all but three of the earlier rhymes.-

With the publication of the Melodies
was also sent out at the same time
Goldsmith's Goody Two Shoes, and
these two books will outlive all the
"good little books with neat cuts,"
that have been published since. The
edition of Goody Two SJioes illustrated
by Walter Crane is exceedingly at
tractive and will follow in the trail of
Mother Goose.

the picture book enters seriously into
the child's first years, as does the move

of beautiful color and design as factors
in education has long been recognized,
there only remains the discrimination'
and selection.
Gifts of Illustration.
This generation has showered* many
rich gifts of illustration and fancy
upon the children's books, and the ugly
little dummies that display themselves
in the Chatterbox and kindred litera
ture, have been replaced by the de
lightful sketches as shown in the Cal
dicott picture books, in "All the.World
Over'' an rl "Bag Taa anA Bo To^l and Tail
Edith Farmeloe in "There Was an Old
Woman Who Lived in a Shoe" illus
trated in color by K. J. Henall, and
"Cock-A-Doodle-Do" by Cecil Aldin
"Children of Our Town," illustrated
by E. Mars and M. H. Squire "Child
hood" by Katherin Pyle, illustrated by
Sarah Stillwell.
The Kate Greenaway books are al
ways favorites, as also Walter Crane's
illustrations, which are beautiful in
color and design. Here are a few of
the latter:
This Little Pig Went to
Market," Mother Hubbard,''
"Beauty and the Beast," "Eed Eiding
Hood," and his "Flora's Feast." A
Masque of Flowers." a gem of beauty
Peter Newell's "Topsys and Turveys"
and "Pictures and Ehymes," the latter
illustrated in black and white with a
preface by /ohn Kendrick Bangs, are
full of delicious humor,1
while "Joan of
Arc" by G. M. Boutel de Monvel is so
beautiful that a child is fortunate to
have grown up with it. One of ,the
modem favorites is a little book called
"Nanny,'"illustrated in color by T. 13.
Butler, which is full of quaint and
laughable rhymes. The old-fashioned
one called "Slovenly Peter" by H.
Hoffman ig another favorite, altho I
could never discover why, unless it is
due to subconscious fellow-feeling with
Peter's delinquences.
Beatrice Potter's Books.
Beatrice Potter is another modern
illustrator and her A Tale of
Peter Eabbit," "The Tale of Squirrel
Nutkin," and "The Tailor of Glouces
ter" make attractive and holdable
books, and the little brothers there are
drawn with life and sympathy. The
picture book is the story without words,
the story with the preaching left out.
Association with pictures like these will
unconsciously develop the child's taste
for harmonious lines and color, and
open up later the great book of nature,
not that false aspec*t that depicts tad
poles as ruminating on their trans
morphosej, or caterpillars reasoning on
their future existences, or the inane
conversations indulged in by mama
this and papa that, but nature with its
transcendent color scheme, its silent
voices, its obedience to law, tracing
with its gracious finger the handiwork
of God.
The Primer's Place.
Allied to the picture books shouldlbe
the primer, but unfortunately, I think
the artistic is too often sacrificed to
the desire 'to talk, which after all might
as well be illustrated by something
beautiful as mediocre.'^V-The "Arnold
Primer," the "Art literature Stories"
and "Folk-Lore Stories" by E., O.
Grover fill the need fairly well, but to
my mind there is an "opportunity for a
beautiful and practical art primer.
There are few books of a miscellaneous
nature that lend a charm to every day
in a child's first years. One of these
is "Folk-Lo fe Stories and Proverbs"
E S. Wiltse, which is a rare adap
tion of old legends, and its illustrations
tell the story even better than the
words. J. H. Haaren is another ac
ceptable compiler, his "Ehymes and
Fables" and
and Tales" are
sympathetic, and have nothing of that

abomination and always to 1)6 avoided
self and have to gather your impres
sions from his voice, which conveys a
vague notion that its owner is slightly
deaf, for he speaks in the measured
monotone of one listening to his own
words, and measuring their sound.
Charles Lamb mourned the days before
the invention of artificial light, say
ing how wretchedly a ioke must have
passed off when you had to feel your
neighbor's face to learn whether he
were smiling or not and perhaps the
lack of conversation while sitters are
in selecting any adaptations from liter
Dear to the Child Heart.
Andrew Lang's "Nursery
Verse for Children.
The rhythm of verse always meets
with quick response from a child. It is
as if he were born with a natural im
petus toward beauty and harmony, and
all musical rythm is hut an echo .front
his recent heaven world. The" child
who can listen to the cadence of a
mother's voice, chanting strains from
those who have -caught a glimpse of the
"light That never was on sea nor land,"
is swayed by its beauty long before
the meaning is revealed. To this end
all musical verse can be utilized, Ten
nyson, Longfellow, Browning, etc.
There are some excellent compilations
of verse from which selections can be
made. Kate D. Shute's "Land of
Song," M. W. Morrison's "Songs and
Ehymes for th e. Little Ones," "The
Posy Bing," and "Gold en Numbers"
compiled by K. D. Wiggin and Nora
Smith are excellent. Of course a child
should hear the songs from Eugene
Field's "Lullaby Land" and "Love
Songs of Childhood." 'should
never be defrauded of "The Calico
Mare," "Saddled and Bridled for
Bumpfield nor from "Pittypat and
Tippytoe." There is a beautiful edi
tion of his poems of childhood illus
trated in color by Maxfleld Parrish,
while from the true friend of every
child has come the "Child's Garden
of Verses," come to leave a smile and
a tender memory.
This ay not be as long a list as the
modern child demands, but it wiri fill
his early life with joy, and lead to the
door which opens into that fair and
wholesome pasturage which is the birth
right of eyerybne who can make it his
own. It is not necessary to be buried
alive in books to learn to love them.
Give the child a few choice ones
that will enrich his life, and teach him
to love them and kn ow them, and-if in
later years the poet or the storymaker
should learn to speak thru him, he may
trace his themes back to that first un
alloyed joy in the flights of Mother
,1 K^Wafr
"Book," Emile Poulsson's "Child'
Stories and Ehymes," and the "Nurs
ery Stories and Ehymes," Edward
Lear's "Nonsense Books," and Kath
erin Pyle's "As the Goose Flies" are
all dear to the child's heart, and tho
latter are especially attractive in illus
tration. Maud Lyndsay's "Mother
StoiieB" are good adaptations .and can
be* read aloud to little ones. Esop's
Fables walk very naturally into these
first days so filled with delightful
ignorance of authorships and classics,
and all such embaig:assiiig,jfespon,sibili
ties There is an edition of Esop's Fables with an introduction by T,
Cary, and illustrated m- color by J. M.
Conde, and also "Baby% Oym Esop'*1
by Walter Crane that are suitable,, for a
first introduction to these fables, and
the illustrations very much enhance the
"story hour."
