Little Folks' Land
by Madge A. Bigham
This delightful book for young listeners awakens children's interest in the world around them through the story of 'Joe-Boy' and how he grew from a baby in a gipsy camp to become an active member of society. We hear first about how Joe-Boy's house is built and furnished, and how his clothes are made. Then we watch Joe-Boy's circle broaden to include the pets he cares for, the wild animals he observes, and the friends he makes. Includes an especially fine group of nature stories. An ideal introduction to a longer narrative for children of kindergarten age.  Ages 5-8
