A story in verse about a good little boy who behaves well both at school and at home.
The text reads: "Much pleased I have been, with all we have seen: Oh, what a good boy is little John Green!"
The illustration depicts a boy sitting outside on a bench and reading. Beside him are a dog and cat and behind him, a woman reaches into a bird cage. The verse reminds children that "like little John Green, be a good little boy. Like him, too, your time in learning employ."
