BOYS AND GIRLS!

This is your book! It is a practice book in silent
reading. It is going to help you to become a better
reader by showing you how to “think straight”
through a story. It tells you some things which
you already know, and a few things which you may
wish to know about famous people, nature, and
other things. We hope you will want to read other
books to find other interesting facts about birds
and trees, ants and earthworms; about experi-
ments and games for boys and girls; about holidays
and festivals; about people who lived long ago, and
those of not so long ago who have done noble deeds.

Learn to read by yourself as Lincoln did, and
help others to read. Did you know that there are
many boys and girls, over ten years of age, in our
beloved United States today who cannot speak,
read, or write the English language?

What are
you going to do about it? First, learn to read well
yourself; second, help others to do the same. This
will help to make all Americans better citizens.
