In writing this little book of recitations it has been the aim of the author to help fill a long-felt want, namely: A work written especially for children; with recitations suitable for all occasions, that will please the children.

Any little girl can find in this book “some piece to speak,” from the time she learns to talk until the time shall arrive for her to lay away her dollies for other joys that come with later years.

A. L. R.
