This book illustrates the letters of the alphabet with pictures and verses that point out good and bad behavior in children including depictions of children being obedient, useful, virtuous, and idle.
"I" is for "Idle little Isobel" who "let me tell you this, pouting lips and ill spent days will not lead to bliss." The illustration depicts a little girl resting her elbows on a stool and pouting.
"J" is for a "Jolly boy" who "loves cherry jam. His name is Jacob Jones, he eats it very carefully and never swallows stones." The illustration depicts a little boy holding a plate of bread and a jar of jam.
