This is a standard turn-of-the-century early reader that starts with very simple readings and works up through some fairy tales to more complex stories. FC appears with two nicely separated simple illustrations on 94-6. The crow flew a long way to find food for her young ones, and is now resting on the long trip home. Where did they get all these angelic children in full-length gowns to pose for the photos? Both copies with just a little girl on the cover are in excellent condition. The Bookman's Corner copy shows several differences: it lays out the colophon on the back of the title page differently, spreads out the T of C over two pages and so loses the aids to pronunciation that had been on the back of the previously tighter T of C, and adds a caption to the first photo.
