To moms.
I were requested to arrange this little relief in your use within the Home—that first and maximum of colleges. the college used to be based via the Maker of guys, and He referred to as moms to be its earliest and most crucial lecturers. He ready a text-book for it which we name His notice, illustrating it richly and completely from existence and Nature, and filling it together with his Spirit. at any place it truly is identified, because the childrens turn into the contributors of the Church, the electorate of the nation, the folks of the realm, the ebook is going with them, forming the Church, the country, the realm. it isn't basically equivalent to the necessity, yet comprises endless riches that wait to be unveiled.
That no busy mom might say, "I can't take time to assemble from the Bible the easy classes that my kids need," this publication of little stories—together making one—has been written. i've got attempted to maintain the natural outlines of the sacred checklist from the vibrant description and the suggestive supposition which are occasionally brought so as to add allure to the tale, and in all quoted speech i've got used the precise phrases of the approved model of the Scriptures, in order that the earliest effect made upon the reminiscence of the kid can be person who should still stay.
The tales aren't an alternative to the Word—only little techniques to it during which younger toes could be guided via her who holds a spot subsequent to the nice instructor in His paintings with sons and daughters.

When the kids assemble at mother's knee, and the tiniest unearths a spot in mother's fingers, and all clamor for a "story," "a tale, mamma," how wonderful is the picture—the residing picture—that circle makes! Love, longing, knowledge, expectancy, religion, shining eyes, lips that movement involuntarily, holding time to the candy events of mother's lips! Blessed team! chuffed mom!
When the tales mom tells are gentle and meaningless, choked with rhyme and rollick, even their eyes are shiny and faces radiant, and her personal candy face and voice provide allure and weight and value to the scrumptious nonsense she rehearses.
Why now not supply to this receptive and keen viewers tales jam-packed with private which means, proof, parables, myths charged with fact? Why no longer humans little thoughts with heroes, saints, kings, prophets, apostles? Why no longer supply tales to story-loving young children that would become immortal images and be remodeled a few day into dwelling components within the making of personality? And why no longer supply them as comparability the babe of Bethlehem, the boy of Nazareth, the lad of twelve years within the colleges of the Temple, the guy of light love, the preacher of righteousness, the employee of heavenly wonders, the Son of guy, the Son of God, the Prince of Peace?
The booklet of books is the kid's e-book. it's a tale booklet. And the tales are "true stories." And the teachings to be drawn from them are numberless, and should arise out of the treasure-house of reminiscence while mother's eyes are closed and her voice silent.
It is a brilliant factor to place mom and the e-book jointly in Baby's suggestion; within the immense boy's reminiscence; within the grown-up man's center and lifestyles.
This booklet is mother's ebook; to assist her in doing the easiest and longest enduring paintings a mom can do to sow seed and set out vines the branches of which shall succeed in into the area of spirits, and from which she and her childrens could lengthy afterwards pluck fruit jointly within the everlasting nation.
