Excerpt from Chickadee-Dee and His Friends
Frank M. Chapman urges, If you would reap the purest pleasures of youth, manhood, and old age, go to the birds and through them be brought within the ennobling inﬂuences of Nature. Go yourself to the field and learn that birds do not exist solely in books, but are con crete, sentient beings, whose acquaintance may bring you more unalloyed happiness than the wealth of the Indies.
These little stories have been written with the hope that they may cause many children to make the acquaintance of the birds of the orchard and meadow, and to feel a very friendly interest in them.
