Description
Preface: The object of this book is to teach children to treat all living creatures with considerate kindness and to appreciate the services of man?s helpers in the animal world. In many homes this teaching is entirely neglected, and it is left for the school?teacher to arouse interest in the animals dependent upon us, and to encourage pity and compassion for their suffering. Sir Arthur Helps says: ?The great advancement of the world, throughout all ages, is to be measured by the increase of humanity and the decrease of cruelty.? Cruelty in any form is a species of savagery. Civilization can be brought about only by education. The savage does not know that he is a savage. The child does not realize that he is cruel, until he is shown the ways in which the lower animals suffer and are made miserable.
