|Notes||Written in preface: "The following little stories have been written in the most simple style and language, with the view of amusing young children, and of interesting them in the nature and habits of animals. Most of the stories aim at showing that animals are capable not only of physical, but mental suffering; and it is hoped that this teaching may lead to an early recognition in the minds of children of their duty towards the animal creation, and thus prevent the commission of many of the acts of cruelty which more commonly result from want of thought than from want of feeling. M.H.... August 1879."|
