Kindergarten Stories and Morning Talks, with over 125 Illustrations is an updated edition of the 1894 kindergarten story curriculum. Enlarged original text with greater line spacing makes this 2010 edition easier to read aloud to children. Cardamom Publishers has also added over 125 vintage illustrations related to the stories, creating a more vivid learning experience for today's visually oriented children. Animal and nature stories, fairy tales, fables, and simple object lessons (explaining how items in daily use at that time were manufactured) are included in this collection. Virtues such as truth and gratitude are emphasized. Elements of history and science can be found in some of the stories. Suggestions for related activities are included. This book is organized into one school year of weekly lessons (September-June) for ease of use by home educators as well as classroom teachers. An ideal first curriculum for homeschooling parents and teachers of young children who enjoy and appreciate vintage texts.
