272 pages including glossary. Occasional black and white illustrations. "The literature in the readers of the lower grades must be largely that of the nursery tale and fairy lore, but when the children have reached the middle period of their public school course - in the Third Reader - they may be introduced with profit to more mature forms of literature, and acquire at an early age a taste for reading good books... A careful reading of properly chosen selections cannot fail to extend the knowledge of the pupils as well as to improve their taste and to develop their power of expression... The highest aim of all good teaching is the development of character, and the selections for practice in oral reading should illustrate the virtues in which the children should be established - the virtues that make for material success, and those especially that form and strengthen right principles of conduct and life." - from the preface. Contains primarily selections drawn from the works of writers in Britain with input from some of Canada's best known writers. Prescribed for use in the schools of British Columbia. Illustrated brown cloth front board reads "The British Columbia Readers - Third Reader." Writing and scribbing upon front endpaper, few marks otherwise. Well worn boards with no major defects.
