THE BOOKS FOR CHILDREN
UP TO TEN YEARS OF AGE

Selected and described by Miss Clara W. Hunt
Superintendent of the Children's Department of the Brooklyn Public Library

Picture Books

T^ABIES a year old are not too young to enjoy pictures. Indeed the child's taste for good
x_/ ^00^5 should begin in babyhood. Do not allow little children to see ugly and vulgar pictures.
Even the "harmless" but empty bool^s are a waste of time and money. Buy the positively good,
like the following.



These picture books illustrate:

MOTHER GOOSE
and other
- NURSERY RHYMES AND JINGLES

Boutet de Monvel

Old Songs and Rounds for Little Chil-
dren, arranged by C. M. Widor, illus.
by Boutet de Monvel. Duffisld. $2.25.
Songs dear to French children, with charm-
ing border pictures. Both French and English
text given. For children six to nine.

Brooke. L. Leslie

Nursery Rhyme Picture Book.

Wame. $2.00.
The Man in the Moon, Humpty Dumpty, Baa,
Baa, Black Sheep, etc. Large pictures liked
by children.

Caldecott, Randolph

Hey Diddle Diddle Picture Book. _ Quarto
edition. Wame. $2.00.

This contains "Hey Diddle, Diddle" and "Baby
Bunting," "Where Are You Going, Mv Pretty
Maid?" "A Frog He Would a-Wooing Go," "The
Fox Jumns Over the Parson's Gate." These
may be ootained singly in paper covers at 50c.
each. Caldecott's pictures are delightfully and
wholesomely humorous and his art appeals to
the youngest children.

Picture Book No. 2. Quarto edition.

Wame. $2.00.
This contains "Three Jovial Huntsmen." "Sing
a Song of Sixpence," "The Queen of Hearts,"
"The Farmer's Boy." These may be obtained
singly in paper covers at 50c. each. Do not
fail to include at least one of Caldecott's fa-
mous picture books in making up the baby's
library.

Crane, Walter
The Baby's Bouquet, a fresh bunch of old
rhymes and tunes. Wa7-ne. $1.50.

Here are "Polly, Put the Kettle On." "Hot
Cross Buns," "Lucy Locket," "London Bridge,"
etc., set to music. Walter Crane's pictures are
very decorative, but this and "The Baby's
Opera" are better suited to children four years
of age and older than to "The Baby,"



The Baby's Opera, a book of old rhymes
with new dresses, the music by the ear-
liest masters. Wame. $1.50.
This includes "The Mulberry Bush," "Ding,
Dong Bell," "Dickory Dock," "I Saw Three
Ships," "Tom, the Piper's Son," etc.

Garnett, L. A.

The Muffin Shop, with pictures by Hope

Dunlap. Rand. $1.00.

A rhyming story bringing in "Mother Goose"

characters. Dunlap's pictures are delightful.

For children three to six or seven.

Greenaway, Kate

These three books are made in England and
are out of print for the period of the loar. As it
seems imjiossible to think of a booklist for little
children without titles from the work of this
famous ai'tistj it seems best to include these.

The Marigold Garden. Wame.

Kate Greenaway's pictures are quaint and
charming. Ko nursery is complete without at
least one of the picture books by this famous
illustrator. For children three or four to seven
or eight years old.

Mother Goose. Wame.

A tiny book which children of three will love.
Babies, however, like larger figures than the
fascinating little creatures pictured here.

Under the Window, pictures and rhymes
by Greenaway. Wame

For children three or four to eight. This is
quite as pretty as the two preceding books.

LeMalr. H. Willebeek

Our Old Nursery Rhymes, the original
tunes harmonized by Alfred Moffat,
illus. by LeMair. McKay. $2.50.

LeMair's pictures are lovely in coloring and
grace and range of beautiful subjects. Of the
four books listed here. "Little Songs of Long
Ago" and "Our Old Nursery Rhymes" are best.
Buy both of these volumes for the baby if you
can. The whole family will love them.

This book contains "Little Jack Horner." "I
Love Little Pussy." "Jack and Jill," "Pat-a-
Cake," "Humpty Dumpty," "Three Little Kit-
tens," "Mary Had a Little Lamb," "Dickory
Dock," "Yankee Doodle," etc.

FAIRY TALE PICTURE BOOKS

/N another section will be given a list of
Fairy Tales in the form of books which
are not notable primarily for their -pictures.
Following are picture books which take a
few well-known fairy tales for their sub-
jects. These should be bought for children
from, three or four to seven or eight, not, as
a rule, for the tiniest children.

Brooke, L. Leslie

The Golden Goose and the Three Bears.

Warne. $2.00.
Each of the two stories included in this vol-
ume may be obtained separately in paper covers
for 75c.

Three Little Pigs and Tom Thumb.

Warne. $2.00.

Each of the stories Included in this volume
may be obtained separately in paper covers for
75c.

"The Three Bears" and "The Three Little
Pigs" represent the most perfect style of making
pictures for little children. I wish more artists
would study these pictures of Leslie Brooke.



Crane, Walter
Beauty and the Beast Picture Book, con-
taining Beauty and the Beast, the Frog
prince and The hind in the wood.

Lane $1.25.
Walter Crane's pictures are highly considered
by artists, but they are rather confu-sing for
the tiny folk. They are also terrifying to ex-
tremely nervous children. Buy for healthy bovs
of five to seven, who delight in tales of dragons
and giants, in bravery against odds.

P'ROM "ROLY-POLY PUDDING," BY BEATRIX

Just the sort of stories for a mother to tell at
bedtime to babies of two or three years.

New Baby World, stories, rhymes, and
pictures for little folks.

Gates, J. S.

Captain Billie leads the way to the land
of "I don't want to." Dodd. 75c.

The little books by Gates tell about doll-
children who ran away from their mamas be-
cause they did not like to go to bed early, hated
to be clean, wanted unlimited candy. In each
case the "moral" is droUy pointed. For children
three to six.



Little Girl Blue.



Houghton. 65c.



Tommy Sweet-Tooth and Little Girl
Blue. Houghton. 65c.

Hopkins, W. J.

The Sandman, His Farm Stories.

Page. $1.50.
Bedtime stories told by a father to a three-
year-old about plowing, sugar-making, haying,
apole-gathering. etc. Interesting to children of
eight or nine as well as to tiny folks.

About Harriet. Houghton. $1.50.

About a little girl who had good times in the
big city. For children three to nine.

Johnson, Margaret
A Bunch of Keys. Button. $1.50.

The charm of these stories lies in the fact that
little pictures take the place of words wherever
that could be managed by the story teller. Be-
erinners in reading will particularly enjoy this.



Lefevre, Fellcite

The Cock, the mouse and the little red hen,

illus. by Tony Sarg. Jacobs. 90c.

A story that will be popular as long as there

are little children to listen to it. The picturej

in this small book are as popuar as the story.

Potter, Beatrix

The Pie and the Patty Pan.

Warne. 60c.
Beatrix Potter's story-pictures of little animals
who do human things are too well known and
too well loved by children to need comment. Un-
fortunately artists and writers of mediocre abil-
ity are imitating these books till the market is
flooded with second rate stuff and little children
are fed on stories of too narrowing a sameness.
Even babies should have variety in their literary
diet, and even Beatrix Potter is not alwayn
at her best. Buy all the following if you like.
These are good. Then stop buying books of this
sort.

The Roly-Poly Pudding. Warne. $1.25.

Tale of Benjamin Bunny. Warne. 60c.

Tale of Jemima Puddleduck. Warne. 60c.

Tale of Mr. Jeremy P'isher. Warne. 60c.

to small children and to a beginner in reading.



BOOKS FOR CHILDREN UP TO TEN YEARS 7

Fables, Fairy Tales, Myths and Other Famous Classics

The Child's fairy tale years are apt to be from three to nine or ten years of age. All chil-
dren should grow up with the best fairy tales, fables and myths — and with none but the best.

Books in Groups I and II may be bought for the younger children. Group III contains
the stories more likely to appeal to children six or seven to nine or ten. However, do not take
this grading too literally. Let the children themselves choose from any group.



GROUP I

Books in Group I are collections of the most
familiar tales, such as Cinderella,
Three Bears, Hansel and Gretel, Three
Billy Goats Gruff, etc. If you can
afford the most expensive book in the
group get it. All these are good, but
the prices will show that some are
small collections.
