Excerpt from Living Creatures of Water, Land and Air: For the Fourth Reader Grade

The object of McGuffey's Natural History Readers is primarily to furnish to children both at home and in school, interesting and instructive reading in the form of book literature. While no attempt is made to teach science, the hope is cherished that the descriptions of animal habits and characteristics may, incidentally, stimulate a love of nature, and of science, the interpreter of nature.

"Familiar Animals," addressing a lower grade of advancement, confined its subjects to mammals, because the facts connected with this class are apparent, and are more easily comprehended.

"Living Creatures," in respect to grade of thought and expression, takes a step forward. Treating of animals scarcely less familiar, and even more interesting, it enters the field of the lower groups of animal life, where the facts are more remote from ordinary view, demanding closer attention and thought.

To render the illustrations in the highest degree accurate and helpful, the publishers have employed the services of artists whose study and practice have made them specialists in particular departments of animal drawing.
