This little book is confined to very simple “reading lessons upon the Form and Motions of the Earth, the Points of the Compass, the Meaning of a Map: Definitions.”<br /><br />The shape and motions of the earth are fundamental ideas—however difficult to grasp.<br /><br />Geography should be learned chiefly from maps, and the child should begin the study by learning “the meaning of map,” and how to use it.<br /><br />These subjects are well fitted to form an attractive introduction to the study of Geography: some of them should awaken the delightful interest which attaches in a child’s mind to that which is wonderful—incomprehensible. The Map lessons should lead to mechanical efforts, equally delightful. It is only when presented to the child for the first time in the form of stale knowledge and foregone conclusions that the facts taught in these lessons appear dry and repulsive to him.<br /><br />An effort is made in the following pages to treat the subject with the sort of sympathetic interest and freshness which attracts children to a new study.<br /><br />A short summary of the chief points in each reading lesson is given in the form of questions and answers.<br /><br />Easy verses, illustrative of the various subjects, are introduced, in order that the children may connect pleasant poetic fancies with the phenomena upon which “Geography” so much depends.<br /><br />It is hoped that these reading lessons may afford intelligent teaching, even in the hands of a young teacher.<br /><br />The first ideas of Geography—the lessons on “Place”—which should make the child observant of local geography, of the features of his own neighbourhood, its heights and hollows and level lands, its streams and ponds—should be conveyed viva voce. At this stage, a class-book cannot take the place of an intelligent teacher.<br /><br />Children should go through the book twice, and should, after the second reading, be able to answer any of the questions from memory.

If you could have any animal's front teeth, whose would you choose?<br /><br />WHAT IF YOU HAD ANIMAL TEETH? takes children on a fun, informative, and imaginative journey as they explore what it would be like if their own front teeth were replaced by those of a different animal. Featuring a dozen animals (beaver, great white shark, narwhal, elephant, rattlesnake, naked mole rat, hippopotamus, crocodile, and more), this book explores how different teeth are especially adapted for an animal's survival. At the end of the book, children will discover why their own teeth are just right for them. And they'll also get a friendly reminder to take good care of their teeth, because they're the only teeth they'll ever have. Each spread features a photograph of the animal using its specialized teeth on the left and a humorous illustrated image of a child using that animal's teeth on the right.
