PREFACEPREFACEPREFACEPREFACEThis little book is confined to very simple "reading lessons upon the Formand Motions of the Earth, the Points of the Compass, the Meaning of aMap: Definitions."The shape and motions of the earth are fundamental ideas--howeverdifficult to grasp.Geography should be learned chiefly from maps, and the child shouldbegin the study by learning "the meaning of map," and how to use it.These subjects are well fitted to form an attractive introduction to thestudy of Geography: some of them should awaken the delightful interestwhich attaches in a child's mind to that which is wonderful--incomprehensible. The Map lessons should lead to mechanical efforts,equally delightful. It is only when presented to the child for the first timein the form of stale knowledge and foregone conclusions that the factstaught in these lessons appear dry and repulsive to him.An effort is made in the following pages to treat the subject with thesort of sympathetic interest and freshness which attracts children to anew study.A short summary of the chief points in each reading lesson is given in theform of questions and answers.Easy verses, illustrative of the various subjects, are introduced, in orderthat the children may connect pleasant poetic fancies with the phenomenaupon which "Geography" so much depends.It is hoped that these reading lessons may afford intelligent teaching, evenin the hands of a young teacher.

The first ideas of Geography--the lessons on "Place"--which shouldmake the child observant of local geography, of the features of his ownneighbourhood, its heights and hollows and level lands, its streams andponds--should be conveyed viva voce. At this stage, a class-book cannottake the place of an intelligent teacher.Children should go through the book twice, and should, after the secondreading, be able to answer any of the questions from memory.Charlotte M. Mason
