20089 My Play is Study 1853 Krummacher

My Play is Study.

Gerard and his younger brother and sister William and Sophia spend the summer with their friend Amelia. In the first four stories, adapted for American children by a children's writer, they explore the natural world. It can be seen that their play is their study, quite a modern viewpoint at the time. (Amelia's independence and quick mind are delightful.) The title from an aphorism by the older children's poet, Hieronymus von Alphen, a contemporary of Pestalozzi. The second half of the book contains Krummacher's well known Parables, short sketches, fables, and sayings. Note: This book has been sold.



19605 FiveBadChunkies by Preston, McLoughlin

Five Bad Chunkies.

The five children go off to spend the summer with their aunt. Although best known for her cute drawings, Chloe Preston tells riotous stories, not moralistic and not 1920's coy either. Very hard to find.

Jack and Jill.

Jack and Jill give and take as they make seesaws and swings and tangle with the sow. It seems very early for this boisterous little girl! Wonderful book...
