Excerpt from Science Readers, Vol. 4: Animal Life

It ought not be necessary to present arguments in behalf of science in this scientific age. Many years have gone by since Herbert Spencer first showed the great utility of science as educative pabulum. After a long hard fight science won its way into the colleges and then into the high schools, but how to get some scientific truth into the course in the grammar grades has been difficult to solve.

For many years the authors have been at work on this series searching for material not too difficult and still interesting and worth while, and testing it out in the schools. No one familiar with child interests will deny the strong appeal to him of all animal life. Book III, The Baby Animal Zoo, and Book IV, Animal Life, have proven highly inter esting to children of these grades.

For Book V we have taken the great inventors whose problems make such fine educative material. If our chief business is to teach children to think, here surely is Splendid subject matter to this end. Moreover, it is biographical, and the science and thinking are cemented to human action and endeavor. The great popularity of general library books on. Invention should convince us that we were tardy in seizing upon this material for classroom use.
