Please buy me a
toy. What shall
it be? Buy me a
bird. Buy that owl.
Does not the owl
look like a dull
bird ? It does not
fly in the day-time,
but is snug at
home. The owl

dusk,


then it goes
for its food. It
eat mice, and
and then a bat

will live in a barn,
or in an old tree.

The lost Child is fast asleep.






Up, up my child,
vou have had a
nice long sleep. It
is time to wake; it
is time to rise from
your bed. The
sun is up, and the
birds are up.
Hark! do you not
hear them sing ?
41






The bees are busy
at work. They
have been up a
long time. Some
are gone back with
honey to the hive.
Make haste, that
we may go and
watch them near
the hive.

Little Mary in her new dress.





Frank and Lucy
have both been
good to-day. They
may walk with
mamma in the
park. Which way
shall we go ? Lucy
would like to walk
past the lake, that
she may see the
45





swans. Let us walk
under the trees: it
is cool in their
shade. Do you see
that group of deer
under the trees?
Look at that noble
stag: see him toss
up his head. He is
proud of his horns.
46

























The Deer have pretty branching horns.






Look,

every bird that
flies. It was God
who made them all.
He makes the
green grass to
grow, and the
daisy, and the rose.
He sends the dew-
drops which shine
upon every leaf.

Mary is looking through a Telescope.






Papa has sent home
a pony for Charles,
a real pony. Not
like the horse in
the play-room, that
rocks. No, this is
a real pony, that
can trot. Charles
used to ride about
the lawn on Grand-
53






papa's stick, when
he was not much
older than baby is
now. After that,
papa gave him the
white horse that
rocks. And now
Charles has a real
pony, with a long
mane and tail.

It is sweet to hide
from the hot sun-
beam under the
shady trees. The
light wind waves
each leaf with a
sound of quiet
music. There are
many kinds of
trees. The oak, the
57






ash, and the elm;
the fir-tree, and
the beech; the
aspen, and many
more. The apple
tree gives us nice
fruit. I love to pick
up. the apples.
Trees are cut down
for fire wood.

It is grand fun to gather Apples.






There are four
seasons in the
year: spring, sum-
mer, autumn, and
winter; these are
the four seasons of
the year. In
spring, the birds
build their nests.
In summer, the
61






garden looks so
bright and gay. In
autumn, the corn
is ripe. In winter,
the snow lies on the
ground. Once in
winter, Mr. Jones
lost his way in the
snow, but he got
home at last.
