Dooryard Stories

$ 8.95

 

Around the dooryard nest all sorts of birds, including flickers, robins, sparrows, wrens, swifts, and blackbirds. These stories convey some of the drama that arises in the garden as birds go about the business of building nests and raising young. The author's cat Silvertip figures in a number of the narratives as do a number of other mammals and insects. Invites children to 'see how many tiny neighbors you have around you, and how much you can learn about them.'

The publisher, Yesterday's Classics, has been carefully selecting for republication the best of the children's books first published a century ago when a Christian worldview and high standards of literary excellence were the norm. Only books that

  • incorporate text of high literary quality,
  • use story to engage the reader,
  • cultivate the moral imagination,
  • awaken an interest in the out of doors,
  • furnish heroes worthy of emulation, and
  • stimulate powers of observation
meet their standards for selection.

Ages 5-7
