By M. HELEN BECKWITH, Florence Kindergarten, Mass.

Fully illustrated. Boards, 30 cents; Cloth, 35 cents. Supt. S. F. Porter, Seneca Falls, N. Y.

“I am much pleased with Mythland, more so than with any other supplementary reader for primary grades that I have seen.” Supt. J. W. Babcock, Dunkirk, N. Y.,

“ I am pleased to acknowledge the receipt of a copy of In Mythland by Miss Beckwith. I have always believed in the adaption of Greek and Roman myths for young pupils. It tends to develop a taste for the best classic literature when the child becomes more mature. When the phraseology of the myth is suited to the young pupil, as Miss Beckwith has done, there will be no trouble in making such books popular and useful.”

The Story of Ulysses.

Large Type Edition. Illustrated. Boards, 30 cents; Cloth, 40 cents.

It is an ambitious undertaking to attempt the “ Story of Ulysses" for the little ones, in single sentence paragraphs. But this little book contains enough of these ancient stories that are world. renowned to give a taste of their flavor to the youngest children and create a desire to know them more thoroughly when they are older. The vocabulary is not above the comprehension of the children, the type is large and clear, the illustrations plentiful and the binding serviceable. The teachers who are insatiable in their desire for more reading matter for the children (and who is not ?) will gladly welcome this pleasing addition to that which they already have. One hundred and fourteen pages and eleven stories.
