Sketches of Natural History

Excerpt from Sketches of Natural History: Or Songs of Animal Life Her Sketches of Natural History have long enjoyed a wide and well-deserved popularity. Seldom have the habits and manners of animals, with glimpses of rural life, and suggestions of picturesque land scapes, been brought before the young in a more attractive manner. And indeed, Mrs. Howitt being a poetess of no mean order, the following pages may be read with interest and pleasure by children of a larger growth than those for whom they were primarily intended. They are characterized by an infinite variety and Mrs. Howitt seems equally at home when singing of the Stormy Petrel or the Lion, or when describing in sportive verse the gambols of the Monkey or the vagaries of the Carolina Parrot. She ranges at will from grave to gay, from lively to severe, and invariably carries her reader with her. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
