First published in the late nineteenth century by Edmund Selous, Tommy Smith’s Animals is the perfect introduction to natural history for young children, particularly among those using a Charlotte Mason educational philosophy in their homes. This new edition has been lightly edited to bring it up to date for students of the twenty-first century.
The book has been arranged for effective use with Miss Mason’s principle of short lessons,—some chapters have therefore been split into parts and the readings spread across more than one lesson. Another unique facet to the new edition is the inclusion of narration breaks dividing the text, allowing parents and students to move easily through the text at a pace which is suitable to the abilities of the child.
