The Sweetest StoHes Ever Written
for Children

A ~
CHILD'S STORY
GARDEN

by Elizabeth Heber



Your little book of stories is just what we have
needed for a long time. We have them in the eight
branches as well as in the children's room at the main
library and the twenty-five copies we have do not
supply the demand. Eliza G. Brovstning,

lyibrarian Public I^ibrary,

Indianapolis, Ind.

I am delighted with your collection of stories. The
whole book is pleasing and interesting. The bible
stories are especially valuable, and are delightfully told.
Eleanor Williamson. Teacher,

Marion, Indiana.

I think you are to be congratulated upon the wise
selection which you have made of stories in your little
book, "A Child's Story Garden."

W. H. Elson,

Superintendent of Schools,

Grand Rapids, Mich.

My Dear Miss Heber:вАФ

Your beautiful story book fills a great need in the
Kindergarten and Primary School world. I take great
pleasure in commending these stories to teachers.
Yours truly,

Eliza A. Blaker.
