See, the sun is up.

The sun gives us light. It makes the trees and the grass grow.

The sun ri-ses in the east, and it sets in the west.

When the sun ri-ses, it is day. When it sets, it is night.

Do you know who made the sun? God made it.

God al-so made the moon, and all the stars. They give us light by night.

God gives us all we have, and keeps us a-live.

We should love God, and o-bey his ho-ly will.

free kept large thank three slept barge Frank

Well, Hen-ry, what do you read a-bout in your new book?

I read of three boys who went to school; James, Frank, and Wil-ly.

Each of the three boys had a fine large cake.

James ate too much of his cake. It made him sick.

Frank kept his so long, that it was not fit to eat.

But Wil-ly gave some of his to each of his school mates.

He then ate some him-self, and gave the rest to a poor, old, blind man.

Which, do you think, made the best use of his cake?

Sis-ter Ma-ry, do look at Fi-do. He is sit-ting up, and has a hat on.

Does he not look like a lit-tle boy in the chair? It is on-ly Fi-do.

Shall I ask him to dine with us to-day?

Yes. Fi-do, we are to have a ver-y nice pig for din-ner.

Will you take a rib with us? You can have a bit of pie, al-so.

He says not a word. Fi-do can not speak as we do.

Yet he has ways by which he is a-ble to make his wants known.

Ed-ward was the name of the boy.
The name of the dog was Fi-do.
Ed-ward was a gay, kind boy.

The Li-on lives in dark caves. It sleeps there all the day.

At night it goes out to find food. In the day it goes back to its cave.

It can kill an ox, or a sheep, or a ti-ger, or a man.

It can kill al-most a-ny thing it can find.

The Li-on will not eat a-ny thing that it finds dead.

It is not cru-el, but will fight for food, or for its young.

It is so strong, that it can kill al-most a-ny oth-er beast.

It is call-ed the King of Beasts.

What a fine thing it is to read!

A lit-tle while a-go, you could read on-ly lit-tle words.

You had to spell ver-y lit-tle words ; as, C-A-T, CAT: D-O-G, DOG.

But now you can read quite well.
Do

you know why you are bet-ter than Puss?

Puss can play as well as you. She can run as fast as you, and fast-er too.

She can climb trees bet-ter. She can catch mice, which you can not do.

But can she talk? No. Can she read ? No.

Then that is why you are bet-ter than Puss; you can talk and read.
