The Globe Readers
Book 2

The Globe Readers. Book II. Compiled and Edited by Alexander F. Murison, Sometime English Master at Aberdeen Grammar School (1884)


THE formal word-exercises are now relaxed, and the lessons flow with the ease of a less restricted vocabulary. The graduation of difficulty, though now it becomes not quite so obvious, has none the less been carefully considered. Lists for spelling are selected from the lessons, and in occasional instances meanings are given.

The subjects are arranged in general order of the seasons of the year. They point the pupil's attention to the more prominent natural changes that go on regularly around us, and they connect with these a few characteristic operations of the various seasons. Certain of the more familiar or interesting animals are introduced. Moral qualities are inculcated, chiefly by indirect commendation. The page is enlivened with various illustrations.

An easy step is taken, in an interesting and natural way, towards establishing the habit of accurate and thoughtful observation.
