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.
"U" is for "Useful Ursula" who "seizes her broom, she likes the house tidy and clean. So she sweeps up and down and the dust flies away until there is none to be seen." The illustration depicts a little girl holding a broom.
"V" is for "Virtuous Victor" who "is not clever. Here you see him hat in hand vainly trying to remember Mrs. Hemans' 'Better Land.'" The illustration depicts a little boy holding his hat behind his back.
