These collections of stories built around heydays and holidays are proving extremely useful for school libraries and public libraries, for story tellers and program directors. This new one is a collection of Thanksgiving stories, skilfully edited, so that even the extracts from full length books read as short stories. Old times and new, in well balanced rations; stories for children of varying ages and interests. The asterisks in the table of contents indicate stories for younger children. There is adventure, humor, pathos, romance; there is some history and some poetry. Included are stories by such well known writers as Cornelia Meigs, Constance Skinner, Carolyn Balley, Carl Sandburg, Mary Wilkins Freeman and others.
