Books of this character published in the east, we find, are not entirely suitable for use among our people. This fact is also one reason for issuing this work.Brother Edwin F. Parry, who has done so much for the Sunday Schools in composing music and poetry, and in writing various articles of value, prepared these stories, which is itself a sufficient guarantee of their suitableness.It has been the aim in preparing the Simple Bible Stories to word them to suit the capacity of young children. Where difficult words necessarily occur, their meaning is explained in simple language, so that children in reading the stories will be able to understand them.To make the stories short the incidents they contain are narrated as briefly as possible. The teacher in using the book can enlarge upon each story as he chooses.To see that the children fully understand each lesson, the teacher might question them about it. Or, better still, call upon one of them to relate the story in his own way. Also, before taking up a new story for study, review the pupils on the previous one. In this way they will be enabled to connect the narratives. When they have gone over say half of the book, it would be well to give each lesson to a separate pupil in the class and have him prepare himself on that particular lesson. Then the next time the class meets have a general review of all the lessons learned, by having the pupils repeat the lessons in the order in which they come in the book. Try as much as possible to have them relate the stories in their own language, and not to commit them to memory word for word as they are in the book.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
