dc.description.abstractSomeone must have found some very useful material in this book, since it went through ten editions! It is organized into three major sections. The first has five subsections: Activity and Industriousness; Moderation and Self-Control; Orderliness; Carefulness; and Wisdom and Innocence. The second major section has seven subsections: Love and Obedience; Brotherly Love; Charity; Justice; Honesty; Envy; and Gentleness. The third major section deals with the love and greatness of God. Some 212 texts are subsumed under these headings. I have sampled some texts. They seem surprisingly simple. A smart young mouse recognizes a trap but wants to smell the bacon. She just touches the bacon and is trapped (Kazner). Play with danger and you may get hurt (39)! A child enjoys the house of cards he built, but it falls down. What he builds next is better. Patience and courage can do great things (Gellert, 83). A good version of Hercules and the Carter comes, apparently, from Zacharia: Prayer helps, but not alone; work, and then prayer will be effective! (104). A young mouse debates -- and then makes the wrong choice -- as her mother warns and as the cat beckons (124-5). Hagedorn does a good verse presentation of The Stag and the Vine: I die because I wounded the one who gave me safety (144-45). Similarly, Gellert's The Blind and the Lame makes its point nicely (175). Lohn der Luege (193) is a good presentation of BW. This book is in surprisingly good condition for its age.en_US
