TO THE TWO LITTLE WATCHERS AT HOME

PUBLISHER'S NOTE

Leading superintendents of schools and teachers have been pointing out that in "Wild Life Near Home," by Dallas Lore Sharp, there is much valuable supplementary reading for schools, and no less an authority than Mr. John Burroughs, in his recent article in the "Atlantic Monthly" entitled "Real and Sham Natural History," made the statement that "of all the nature books of recent years, I look upon Mr. Sharp's as the best."

The present volume will be found to contain carefully selected chapters from "Wild Life," arranged with special reference to nature study in the schools, where it is hoped that it will become popular with both teachers and pupils.
