For the Children's Hour
by Carolyn Sherwin Bailey
A choice collection of stories for the preschool child, carefully selected, adapted, and arranged by two veteran kindergarten teachers. Includes nature stories, holiday stories, fairy tales and fables, as well as stories of home life. Emphasis is placed on fanciful tales for their value in the training of the imagination and on cumulative tales for developing a child's sense of humor and appealing to his instinctive love of rhyme and jingle.  Ages 4-7
464 pages $15.95   





"I," said the duck, "I call it fun,

For I have my little red rubbers on.

They make a cunning three-toed track

In the soft, cool mud; quack, quack!"

"I," cried the dandelion, "I.

My roots are thirsty, my buds are dry."

And she lifted her little yellow head

Out of her green and grassy bed.

"I hope 'twill pour; I hope 'twill pour,"

Croaked the tree toad from his gray bark door.


"For, with a broad leaf for a roof,

I'm always safely waterproof."

Sang the brook: "I welcome every drop.

Come down, dear raindrops; never stop

Until a broad river you make of me,

And then I will carry you to the sea."
