Excerpt from The First Book of Botany: Designed to Cultivate the Observing Powers of Children

But the present book has a still stronger claim to attention it develops a new method of study which is designed to correct that which is confessedly the deep est defect of our current education. This defect is the almost total lack of any systematic cultivation of the observing powers. Although all real knowledge begins in attention to things, and consists in the dis crimination and comparison of the likenesses and dif ferences among objects; yet, strange to say, in our vaunted system of instruction there is no provision for the regular training of the perceptive faculties. That which should be first and fundamental is hardly attended to at all. We train 'in mathematics, and cram the contents of books, but do little to exercise the mind upon the realities of Nature, or to make it alert, sensitive, and intelligent, in respect to the order of the surrounding world.
