Children (and many adults) openly apply human behavior traits to animals. It is part of their natural compassion toward all living creatures. It also brings the unknown into an arena that is more easily understood. Stories for children of animals with human characteristics allow children to further nurture that compassion as well as provide exercise of their own imaginations. The Hollow Tree stories of Albert Bigelow Paine are classics that are timeless in that sense. Even a child growing up in a dense urban environment is aware there are animals living in nearby parks. And there could be a hollow tree in that park - couldn't there? The original Hollow Tree and Deep Woods Book stories of Albert Bigelow Paine are complete in this volume and the whimsical illustrations of J. M. Conde are included for you and your child's delight. Each chapter has discussion points to enhance the meaning of the words by sharing the feelings and thoughts about what they have just read or heard. This comprehension skill or "reading with meaning" is invaluable to the enjoyment of reading and higher levels of learning. Animals Stories For Children is comfortable reading for grades 3 and up but also can be read aloud to a younger person. Indeed, reading to a child not yet able to read or just beginning is a great way to increase vocabulary and grammar skills. This makes learning to read easier and encourages the healthy habit of reading for entertainment.

Reading With The Senses In Victorian Literature And Science

The nineteenth-century sciences cleaved sensory experience into two separate realms: the bodily physics of sensation and the mental activity of perception. This division into two discrete categories was foundational to Victorian physics, physiology, and experimental psychology. As David Sweeney Coombs reveals, however, it was equally important to Victorian novelists, aesthetes, and critics, for whom the distinction between sensation and perception promised the key to understanding literature’s seemingly magical power to conjure up tastes, sights, touches, and sounds from the austere medium of print. In Victorian literature, science, and philosophy, the parallel between reading and perceiving gave rise to momentous debates about description as a mode of knowledge as well as how, and even whether, reading about the world differs from experiencing it firsthand. Examining novels and art criticism by George Eliot, Thomas Hardy, Vernon Lee, and Walter Pater alongside scientific works by Hermann von Helmholtz, William James, and others, this book shows how Victorian literature offers us ways not just to touch but to grapple with the material realities that Clifford Geertz called the "hard surfaces of life."

In the words of Aldous Huxley, "Every man who knows how to read has it in his power to magnify himself, to multiply the ways in which he exists, to make his life full, significant and interesting." Few people question the value of reading; in fact, most extol its virtues. As our culture becomes more complex, reading plays an increasingly greater role in satisfying personal needs and in promoting social awareness and growth. In the last 20 years, the teaching of this invaluable skill has focused so intensely on comprehension and prediction from context that it has lost sight of the significance of automaticity and fluency in the word-identification process. Reading is a synthesis of word recognition and comprehension; thus, this text is about these basic processes and their integration. A common plea from teachers today is that research and psychology be translated into teaching behavior. Therefore, the aim of this book is twofold: one, to identify, report, organize, and discuss those bits of data, research and theory that are most relevant to the teacher's understanding of the reading process; and two, to help educators to interpret and apply theory and research data to everyday classroom teaching, as well as to the problems encountered frequently in developmental and remedial teaching.
