Σελίδα 157 - I'll tell you how the sun rose, A ribbon at a time. The steeples swam in amethyst, The news like squirrels ran. The hills untied their bonnets, The bobolinks begun. Then I said softly to myself, "That must have been the sun!" But how he set, I know not.

Σελίδα 293 - At evening when I go to bed I see the stars shine overhead; They are the little daisies white That dot the meadow of the Night. And often while I'm dreaming so, Across the sky the moon will go; It is a lady, sweet and fair, Who comes to gather daisies there; For when at morning I arise, There's not a star left in the skies; She's picked them all, and dropped them down Into the meadows of the town.

Σελίδα 157 - That must have been the sun!" But how he set, I know not. There seemed a purple stile, Which little yellow boys and girls Were climbing all the while, Till when they reached the other side, A dominie in gray Put gently up the evening bars And led the flock away.
Σελίδα 14 - ... particularly about folks and of things in relation to folks. If you observe little children, you will find they are interested in the world of things mainly in its connection with people, as a background and medium of human concerns. Many anthropologists have told us there are certain identities in the child interests with those of primitive life. There is a sort of natural recurrence of the child mind to the typical activities of primitive peoples...
Σελίδα 3 - The period of reconciliation of the two conceptions in our awn country is practically that of the present generation. Interest is essential as the starting point of the educative process ; effort is essential as its outcome. The purpose of appealing to the interest of the child is to lead him to the point where he will put forth effort to master the unsolved problems, the undetermined relationships of his environment, whether of the schoolroom or of life.
Σελίδα 142 - NATURE, like a. great poet, knows how to method. pro(juce tne grandest effects with the fewest materials. You have only a sun, trees, flowers, water, and love. In sooth, should this last be absent from the heart of the beholder, the aspect of the whole may be poor enough...
Σελίδα 153 - ... take home even a penny of money. Her father would certainly beat her; besides, it was almost as cold at home as here, for they had only the roof to cover them, and the wind howled through it, although the largest holes had been stopped up with straw and rags.
