Brave Little Goose Girl.

Boston: D. Lothrop and Company, Franklin Street, corner of Hawley, 1888, Story Tree Series, green cloth boards with gilt title and little girl on a chair reaching for a flower, rounded spine with no title; plain endpapers, many illustrations in text, 5 x 7.25"; np. Small hardback.

A collection of simple, short, stories and poems for young children, well written and sometimes quite funny, with lovely illustrations from the publisher's files. A little Goose girl proves she is brave, a sweeping girl sings a poem about all the things in the house she could possibly sweep. an older sister is left babysitting and decides to make Molasses candy with an unfortunate chain of results, all very good natured glimpses into 19th children's lives, and not didactic. One of six in the Story Tree series.

Diaz taught at William Alcott's Brook Farm, published stories for children both in books and in magazines like St. Nicholas and supported women's rights. "Diaz believed in the essential goodness of children, and the consequent humour and affection with which she treated her characters accounted for her popularity." Britannica.
