The Pathway to Reading: Third Reader
(Silver Burdett and Co.,, 1925)
This book represents a very lucky find. I no longer expect to find as-yet-undiscovered fable books in rural antique stores. Here I found two from the same series! The fables included here are: Hercules and the Wagoner ...
The Beacon Third Reader
(Ginn and Company Ltd., 1914)
This reader features two items that belong in the fable world: Androclus and the Lion (46), attributed to Roman Tradition, and Reynard the Fox (241), described as a German folk tale. There is one black-and-white illustration ...
Studies in Reading: First Grade
(University Publishing Company, 1924)
This schoolbook in poor condition joins copies I had already found of the second and third readers in the same series. This book is missing at least 41-46, but it still has three fables intact, two of them with nice ...

The Ontario Readers: Second Book
(Coles Publishing CompanyT. Eaten Co., 1923)
A facsimile of a typical reader in the same series as my First Book (1923/71). There are over a dozen fables from various sources, about six illustrated in black-and-white by C.W. Jefferys. The unusual presentations ...
My Story Book
(World Book Co., 1926)
FG, CP, LM, BC, FC, and TH are among the thirty stories. Wolcott's multi-colored illustrations are nice and in good shape. Maybe the best picture is the first, that of FG.

This classroom book uses four fables to teach lessons from storytelling to paragraph organization: GA (15), Two Goats (168), Trying to Please Everybody (208), and SW (221). There are two pages of colored pictures ...
