A FEW WORDS TO THE LITTLE ONES.

DEAR CHILDREN,

HE “Child's PICTURE STORY BOOK” has been

prepared as a gift or reward for the Good

Now carefully read what this little book has to say for itself, and when you have done so, kiss and love the kind friend who sent it, and sometimes think of the busy hands that made it.
