The Globe Readers
Book 3

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


THE interest in Nature, awakened in the previous Books, is here extended and deepened.

Various quadrupeds, and several kinds of birds, as well as some other animals, engage attention to their habits and conditions of life. Certain familiar trees are surveyed in the forest, and followed to the workshop. There is tea, and coffee, and cocoa, with sugar to sweeten them. There are a few incidents from history, and a few scenes from fiction. There is a dash of adventure, and a spice of humour. The activities of youth are considered; good impulses are encouraged and strengthened; and the mind is touched with the joys and sorrows of one's fellows. The prose is lightened by alternations of poetry, and the scenes of both are rendered vivid by numerous illustrations.

The lessons are carefully graduated. After each, lists for spelling are arranged, and meanings are fully explained.
