Catalog Record | Enlarge Image | Adopt a Book Home

With the secularization of American society after the Civil War, this book by minister Asa Bullard answered a need to give children something wholesome yet entertaining to read while keeping the Sabbath free from raucous play.  This is a selection of short stories and poems, issued with luxurious full page photo-engravings, like this one of children playing with their large (but gentle) dog.

Adopted in memory of William O. Gardiner by Marie Lamoureux and Joanne Chaison
