9781331577140: The Liberty Reader (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Liberty Reader

The Liberty Reader was made to meet the wide-felt need of a book compiled from the literature of the war, which would be suitable for boys and girls of elementary-school age. Teachers everywhere have been alive to the duty of the school to implant in the minds and hearts of their pupils a knowledge and an appreciation of the ideals that lie behind this great war for human liberty, and to make potent as an influence in their young lives the glorious examples of heroism and sacrifice and service which have already sanctified the struggle. Until very recently all the "patriotic readers" we have had - including even those published since the beginning of the war - have been composed, in the main, of stereotyped selections familiar to school children of a generation ago. They contain little or nothing of the literature of the present war. Unfortunately for the needs of the elementary school, even the books that are now beginning to appear, made from the literature of the present war, are all beyond the capacity of elementary-school children to understand. Children of grammar-school age are not mature enough to understand and appreciate the messages and addresses of our great President - glorious as they are - or the utterances and writings of statesmen and publicists of America and Europe, because the things they deal with lie altogether too deep for children's minds to fathom.

The Liberty Reader makes its appeal straight to the feelings, imagination, and sympathies of the child. It does not seek to inform him or instruct him.
