Excerpt from Stories of Childhood and Nature

To Open the door and let the children go out to the woods, the fields and the shore, where countless things of interest invite and await them, is the purpose of the little nature sketches of this book.

To show that such outdoor joys are felt even after the boys and girls have joined the ranks of the grown-ups, stories are given from John Burroughs, Thomas Nelson Page, Frank M. Chapman, Gilbert Pearson, Ella Florence Padon, Mrs. Olive Thorne Miller, Mrs. Grinnell, and many other authors, to whom grateful and courteous acknowledgment is made for permission to use them.

To respond to the human interests of children, is the pur pose of the indoor stories, and of the tales of other lands and times.
