From the publisher's website:
"This reader is compiled of classic stories written by Arabella Buckley and Julia McNair Wright in the late 1800s. It takes a charmingly narrative approach to the life of insects.
This is part of a complete course that can be used in the grammar school years. There is no better start to science than studying nature itself. While it may seem daunting to the adult to study insects for a full year, students love drawing, classifying, naming, and describing creation."
