Excerpt from Our City: A City Reader Educators are just beginning to realize the great difference between the life Of the city child and that Of the country child, and apparently but little effort has yet been made to put the former into touch with his com plicated environment. The reading material available for the young in our schools is written or compiled almost entirely with the country child in view. The authors Of this book have tried to supply the need Of the city child by furnishing material which shall give him some knowledge of the organized life of the city, an ideal Of city conditions, and an idea Of the good things which the city makes possible. Our City is designed for use in the home and in children's clubs as well as in school - in every place where there is a child who can read. The book is designed to stimulate the child to think as well as read. At the close of each chapter are ques tions which the pupil is to answer orally or in writing. They are so framed as to lead the child to observe and to reflect upon the subjects which have been brought to his attention. The teacher will gain additional insight into the lives of her class by considering the answers given to these queries.
