HE Infiruction of Children having been

always thought, by "vise Men, of great Use, both with regard to the present Age, and to Posterity ; and most of the Books, which have been made use of to introduce Children into an Habit of Reading, being such as tend rather to cloy than entertain them; I have thought fit, with short Defcriptions of Animals, and Pictures fairly drawn (which last Experience Shews them to be much delighted with) to engage their Attention. I have therefore extraEted froni some of the most considerable Authors a short Account of Beasts, Birds, Fishes, Serpents, and Infeets; which, I bope, will prove the more acceptable, there having been nothing done (that I know of) in this Nature, so compendiously, for the Entertainment of Children. I bave forborne to be very particular in the Description of those . Animals, which . almost every child is acquainted with. If this brief Elay Mall any Ways contribute to the End proposed, let God have the Glory, and the Compiler the good wishes and Prayers of Parents.
