is not expected that the stories in this book will be told
in their present form to Kindergarten children,
as experience has shown that each Kindergartner must
modify her story to suit the needs and capacities of her
and must learn to take from any story just so much as may be
helpful to her in creating a fresh story for the occasion.
It is hoped, however, that they may serve the mother in her
reading with her group of children, and also that my
in primary and second grade schools may sometimes
use them for Friday afternoon readings.
A friendly critic has suggested that I add "One story a day
is enough for a child." This is certainly the case if the
is to make any deep or lasting impression.
