Mama gave

THERE was a little boy, whose Papa and

him a little book like this, and sent him to school.

It was a very fine morning; the sun shone, and the birds sang on the trees.

Now this little boy did not much love his book, for he was but a silly little boy; and he had a wish to play, and not go to school. And he saw a bee flying about from flower to flower; so he said, “Pretty bee, will

you come and play with me?" But the bee said, “No, I must not be idle; I must go and gather honey.” Then the little boy met a dog, and he said, “Dog,

will you play with me?" But the dog said, “No, I must not be idle; I am going to watch my master's flock, and I must make haste, lest any of them go astray.”

Then the little boy went to a hay-rick, and he saw a bird pulling some hay out of the hay-rick, and he said, “Bird, will you come and play with me?" But the bird said, “No, I must not be idle; I must get some hay to make my nest with, and then I must get some moss and some wool." So the bird flew away.

Then the little boy said to himself, “What! is no one idle ? then little boys must not be idle.” So he went to school, and sat down to his lessons; and the master said he was a good boy.

II.-THE BUSY BEE. heat health

skill each spread

health-ful year sweat

mis-chief How doth the little busy bee

Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day

From every open flower !
How skil-ful-ly she builds her cell!

How neat she spreads the wax,
And labours hard to store it well

With the sweet food she makes!
