begs Dog, and af
very good Dog is our |

ia Tray; he guards the®
house at night, and if any one |#
should try to steal the fowls ~
from the hen-house, he would |
bark till he made us hear him.







oS is

Good Tray, I am very fond}
of you.

Kigg. Hens lay Kiggs,

| You may see a number at the

A corn, and when they grow
Ww |large, are called fowls, and
sent to the market to be sold.



begins Fox, and a sly (@&
fellow heis. The Fox
a i lives in holes in the
ae but he often comes-out
and waits near the farm-yards Be
to run off with the fowls, or Zé
ducks, or the geese; for he is
a sad thief. Some rich men
keep foxes, and hunt them for
_ Sport.





begins Goat.

“ "The Goat is very
tame, and looks very
wise, for it has a fine
_long beard. The Goat gives
milk. It is not quite so good | as the milk of a cow, but where I
there are no cows, the people =2'4
are glad to drink Goat’s milk. Ss



is the first letter of
Horse. How noble
3 he looks, and what a
“useful creature he is. I do
6 not know what we should do
Hg@- without the horse to draw carts
me and coaches, and to carry








aaa

== people on his back, for they

=== take them, norin half so short
a time.

® is the first letter in Inn. oo

may take tea, or dine, or sleep; /)
but they must pay for all they |_

eat, and for their lodging. a








begins Jay. Pretty
4) Jay, with its bright @am
| plumage. The Jay is He




‘magpie; that is, it. can be Bani
taught to utter sounds like fal
words. But speaking birds .
do not know the meaning of
what they say.



is the first letter i
Kite. I like to seea
Kite fly up in the air.
It is tied to along string which
the boy holds in his hand, and
he could pull the Kite down, if
« he chose; but he likes to see
=—| it fly up high.

begins Lamb. Lambs

are very playful and

pretty. When Lambs

grow up, we call them sheep ;

ahi their flesh is then called

mutton. The wool when spun

and wove into cloth, makes our
warm clothes.






EA | begins Mouse. O!
an X ih you little Mouse, so
Times you are eating the

me a sticeee, I Te but if Puss

) i Dh, : e) ; should come this way, she

i “~ e» # would soon spoil your dinner:
a ee so you had better run away.







N begins Nosegay. See |
fl what pretty flowers. ,

there are init. Hlere|:
are roses and pinks, and blue- |
bells, and many more beside. #f
How sweet they smell. If}
should like to have a little —
garden.





begins Owl. A bird
that does not like the
daylight, because he
can see best when it is almost
‘dark. When the sun is set,
and other birds are going to
rest, then the Owl begins to fly
abroad.

fine talleage. Hark!
w” and you shall hear her
-- speak:—Pretty Poll,
What's o’cloeck? “Past two,”
said the Parrot. What is).
your name? “ Polly; Pretty

Polly.” ‘







the first letter in
Queen.
Here is the Queen and
Prince Albert riding
in the Park. You told me,

=| mamma, that the Queen had a

=| little boy. Yes, my dear; he
is the Prince of Wales; and if
=| he should live after his mam-
=| ma, he will be king.

) begins Rabbit.

fe [’ It is a very pretty
ae creature, with long
ears, and nice soit fur. In the
country you may oiten see a
wild rabbit run across a field
or a path, and then they are
sometimes shot, poor things !
for they are good to eat, and
make a very nice pie.



A

begins Squirrel.
What a fine bushy tail
it has, and how fast it
| jumps about in that high tree.
| Squirrels are caught in the
f(y woods, where they live in a
wild state, upon nuts and
| acorns, and leap from tree to
Wie tree with great ease; but they
(iz are sometimes tamed, and kept
a in cages.

is the first letter in|
| Tee-to-tum.
Come, let us spin it,

sides, with a figure on each
side. We will count them:

seven, eight.

the table, at tea-time, full of |,

the tea with. Tea is the leaf
of a plant that grows in a dis-
tant country ; and the leaves
when gathered, are dried, to
make them ready for use.

































is the first letter in
Vessel.

All Ships are called
Vessels, yet some are named
brigs, sloops, barques, &e.—
_ | Perhaps this one is going to
S| China, to fetch tea; or to the
”| West Indies, for sugar and
== coffee. I hope she will have
=|a good voyage, and return
safe.

The Wagon is
W made wide and
long, to carry a

great many goods. See what Vf

fine horses there are to draw |)
it. The man who drives aj
Wagon, is called a wagoner ; f
he is very proud of his horses, |3gy
