The Latch Key of My Bookhouse

Olive Beaupre MILLER (1883 - 1968)

This is the final book in a six volume set of the "My Bookhouse" books. This final title in the series leaves off the format of the previous volumes and is geared towards the parent or teacher. The major part of the books deals with short biographies of the authors whose works appeared in the previous five volumes. Then follow several interesting sections, some of which include: the History of Mother Goose, The World's Great Epics, and How to Judge Stories for Children.

For the several indexes included in the second half of the book, including a historical index, a geographical index and others, please see the online text linked below. (Summary by Maria Therese)
