Excerpt from The World and Its People, Vol. 4: Our American Neighbors
It is now conceded by nil educators that school instruction should be supplemented by reading matter suitable for use by the pupil both in the school and in the home. Whoever looks for such reading, however, must be struck at first with the abundance of what is offered to schools and parents, and then with its lack of systematic arrangement, and its consequent ill adaptation to tho needs of young people.
It is for tho purpose of supplying this defect, that the publishers have decided to issue a series of volumes, under tho general title of the Young Folks' Library for School and Home.
These books arc intended to meet the needs of all children and youth of school age; from those who have just mastered their first primer, to those who are just to finish the high school course.
