Introductory price, .....

60 The distinctive character of these School Readers is nowhere more marked than in this Reader for Sixth Grades. Each book torms an independent whole, with salient points of its own, yet trgether they make a progressive and harmonious series. The genial face of Washington Irving smiles upon us from the first page, and the exquisite humor of his “Rip Van Winkle" is a delightful introduction to this book. To still further heighten the interest in this selection two lite-like illustrations of Joseph Jeffer. son in this character, which he has done so much to immortalize, are given. The chapters by Darwin, Thoreau and Sir Charles Lubbock will appeal to the investigating mind, and the child fond of sport will be drawn through Thomas Hughes' contribution to find continued entertainment in his writings. The poetical selections make this a notable book of the series, and so varied are they in character that an almost unlimited study of history, both ancient and modern, is possible through their use. To the many teachers who have discarded readers and who have spent hours in research these books of choice, well-graded literature will prove a boon and will be earnestly welcomed.
