"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."
— L.M. Montgomery

It will be a sad day for the children when they no
longer find great delight in learning what the boys
and girls of former days thought, felt, and did.
Something is wrong when little people cease to have
the keenest interest in the pastimes, occupations, apparel,
and homes of the children of long ago and in all the details which made up their daily life. One of
the most efficient agencies in winning children to
simple and wholesome living may be the book that
records the story of childlife in earlier days in a way to enlist the sympathy of the reader. ~ Every Day Life in the Colonies (1905
