The sequel to the famous and popular volume "The Mother at Home" by the same author. John S.C. Abbott (1805-1877) devoted his life to writing books with children and young people in mind. In his own words, "This book is intended not for entertainment, but for solid instruction. I have endeavoured, however, to present instruction in an attractive form to gain the attention of the young. Though the book is particularly intended for children, or rather for young persons, it is hoped that it will aid parents in their efforts for moral and religious instruction." The subjects covered are: RESPONSIBILITY, DECEPTION, OBEDIENCE, RELIGIOUS TRUTH, PIETY & TRAITS OF CHARACTER. The book is filled with examples drawn from real life that will speak directly to the heart of the child who cares for his never-dying soul. A true classic!
