Gerard and his younger brother and sister William and Sophia spend the summer with their friend Amelia. In the first four stories, adapted for American children by a children's writer, they explore the natural world. It can be seen that their play is their study, quite a modern viewpoint at the time. (Amelia's independence and quick mind are delightful.) The title from an aphorism by the older children's poet, Hieronymus von Alphen, a contemporary of Pestalozzi. The second half of the book contains Krummacher's well known Parables, short sketches, fables, and sayings. Note: This book has been sold.
