Summary of the Book 'A Mother List Of Books For Children':

A Mother S List Of Books For Children by Gertrude Weld Arnold. _A MOTHER S LIST_ p. xi It is said in that earliest collection of English proverbs which was made by John Heywood more than three hundred years ago that Children must learn to creep before they can go. This little book for which I am asked to write a brief preface is so far as I can find out the first consistent effort yet made towards teaching children to read on John Heywood s principle. It is safe to say that it is destined to carry light and joy into multitudes of households. It is based upon methods such as I vaguely sighed after nearly fifty years ago when I was writing in the _North American Review_ for January 1866 a paper entitled Children s Books of the Year. The essay was written by request of Professor Charles Eliot Norton then the editor of that periodical and I can now see how immensely I should have been relieved by a book just like this Mother s List a device such as nobody in that day had the wisdom and faithful industry to put together.
