Stranger Danger!

Illustration:  Scarecrow.  The Three Bears’ Picture Book.  Illustrated by Walter Crane.  George Routledge and Sons: London & New York.

“The scarecrow was so sympathetic that they became great friends.”

So he stumbled along by himself till he came to a clearing. There were bright red flags fluttering on the edges of it, and in the middle of the field stood a tall, thin man with a gun pointing straight at Paul.

Is It Better To Get Up Early?

Illustration:  Early To Bed, And Early To Rise.  NURSERY COLORED PICTURE BOOK.  McLOUGHLIN BROS.: NEW YORK. Ca 1870.

“EARLY TO BED, AND EARLY TO RISE.”

 “You naughty bird, I want to know

Why you so early rise;

You wake me, when you know that I

Have hardly closed my eyes?”

 

“Why, really, dear,” said Cocky Crow,

“I hear you with surprise;

You go to bed with other lambs,

And quickly shut your eyes.”

 

“So when I sound my morning call,

Be quick, my pet, and rise;

For that’s the way to healthy be,

And wealthy, love, and wise.”

Illustration:  Calf On The Wall.  Mother Goose - Volland Popular Edition.  Edited by Eulalie Osgood Grover.  Illustrated by Frederick Richardson.  Published by P. F. Volland Company: New York, Chicago & Toronto. 1921.

There was an old man,

And he had a calf,

And that’s half;

He took him out of the stall,

And put him on the wall,

And that’s all.
