If you, too, like to preview the books you give to the children in your lives, please check out the longer preview of Miss Missy’s School Book I: A Pack of Farm Dogs Starts a School.
Our daughter and grandson like to read books in their entirety. So the preview contains all of the front matter, “A Letter from Marica to you” (short introduction), the first two chapters, a sample from the “Epilogue: Old Things & Ways Explained,” and the complete index.
Using an index is one of the earliest tools of independent research as well as helping to promote analytical skills. .Valerie Elliston, Indexing Children’s Books
The preview is a PDF taken from the file the printer uses–so it looks exactly like the book. If you’d like, you could even print it on 70-pound paper to see just how the colors pop in Caroline’s water color illustrations!
