OXFORD

PREFACE.

IN THIS, as in the preceding Reading Books of the present Series, great pains have been taken to render the lessons interesting and varied, and carefully to graduate them.

With a view to making the children fond of reading, most of the lessons have been written on subjects with which they are familiar, and in which, therefore, much of their interest is engaged. With the same object in view, poetry has been profusely scattered through the book.

To young teachers it may perhaps be well to remark here that, in order to render the Geographical Readings pleasant and instructive, they should have a Map at hand and make frequent references to it as the reading goes on, and, by the use of a Globe and any other appliances which may be at their disposal, they should endeavour to give to these lessons clearness, and thoroughness, and life.
