Excerpt from A Fourth Reader While doubtless much good has come from reading the brief selec tions from standard authors found in the ordinary readers, they have failed of the prime purpose of inculcating a fondness for literature in its completeness and a taste for reading good books. It is not improbable that the too prevalent taste for scrappy reading is partially derived from the character of the reading books upon which children have been fed. Hence as many selections as possible in these Readers are given in full, and it is urged that teachers treat them as complete works of literature and see that they are studied as such. In the Fourth Reader the child is given his first distinct introduction to mythology. In the earlier books, fables and fairy stories have been used, and there has been a little suggestion of mythology; but in the Fourth, myth and wonder - those subjects which appeal to the child's imagination and carry him out of his limited environment into a larger world are emphasized. We believe that this is in accord with what ever truth exists in the culture epoch theory of education. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
