The Story Hour (1899)

by Kate Douglas Wiggin & Nora A. Smith


Quick Overview

Story telling, like letter writing, is going out of fashion. “Come, tell us a story!” It is the familiar plea of children.
  • Details

    If you would be the person with a story, you must not only have one to tell, but you must be willing to learn how to tell it, if you wish to make it a “rememberable thing” to children. To be effective, the story should always be told, never read; for little children need the magnetism of eye and smile as well as the gesture which illuminates the strange word and endows it with meaning. The story that is told is always a thousand times more attractive, real, and personal than anything read from a book. These are character building stories that have been loved by children for years. These are short bedtime stories for young children. 1. A water droplet experiences evaporation, traveling to earth as dew, and eventually reaching his home in the ocean by following the streams. 2. A young boy buys back a friend of his dog from the dog pound and how his money was returned to him. 3. The birth of some Oriole birds and how their parents took care of them. 4. A boy sells his dog to get money so his brother could pay someone else to go fight in the war. 5. A young boy learns a hard lesson for being cruel to animals. 6. A family stove is sold to get money for food and then is returned to the family after one of the children worked for its return as pay. 7. A story of the first Christmas, the first Thanksgiving, and two stories on Washington's life. 8. How a leaf and flower become friends. 9. A boy mistreats a kitten and is punished by the mother cat. 10. How a fur tree became a Christmas Tree. 11. A little girl receives a live bird for Christmas. 12. The joys of having pet frogs. 185 pages
