The Children's Book: A Collection of Short Stories and Poems; A Mormon Book (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Children's Book: A Collection of Short Stories and Poems; A Mormon BookMany pleasant hours have I spent in story-telling, and surely my pleasure was as great as theirs stories to sleepy eyes, out in the summer moonlight on the veranda, with great patches of flowers faintly showing in the shadows of wide branches, and night-birds singing over us; story-telling on rainy afternoons, or by roaring hearth-light; at home and abroad - how many listeners theus; story-telling on rainy afternoons, or by roaring hearth-light; at home and abroad - how many listeners there have been. But I must not tell you what I have read, as I did those little hearers, it must be some things that I have known. If I could only show to my little friends of the present time, the sweet faces remembered looking anxiously into mine, it would be the best part of the book; those - no story could equal.Would that I could make these, also, my friends, as the authors I so loved were mine.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
