Product Description

The things of nature are reminders of spiritual things which may be plainly seen when we learn how and where to look. (Romans 1:20.) God's first book should be the child's primer for his earliest years. Nature pictures furnish the simplest way of acquainting him with our heavenly Father. What child does not respond to pictures and stories? Just outside your door, and even inside the house, you may find babies and cradles and fathers and mothers living, growing, and adventuring. What child does not love a baby?

The object of this little book of pictures and verses is to catch the children's interest and start them on a trail of discovery in this wonderland of childhood where the really-truly fairies—the insects, with many other of nature's children—are adventuring. The spider in the corner is a wonderful creature, with looms and oil factories in that tiny body, and she is working to help us get rid of flies. The doodlebug in the sand has a marvelous trap. Can you find him?
