Parables from Nature by Margaret Gatty

Parables From Nature (Living Book Press). I am using this book as part of a homeschool curriculum. My oldest (age 10) just finished it; my middle child is about 1/3 of the way through through; and my youngest will begin next year (around age 7). These stories seem simple enough-maybe even a little quaint.

Parables from nature. The book of Nature-that universal and public manuscript that lies expanded unto the eyes of all. -Sir Thomas Browne. By. Margaret s. gatty. Margaret Scott married the Rev. Alfred Gatty, . in 1839, who had his living at Ecclesfield, in Yorkshire. There Mrs. Gatty remained until her death. Her breadth of view and liberal-mindedness enabled her to help in the betterment of her husband’s parish. When the use of chloroform to alleviate pain began, Mrs. Gatty became an enthusiastic disciple. She overcame the prejudices of the local doctor; she taught him how to use it; and then to encourage the ignorant and timid villagers, she took the first dose of the drug herself. Parables from nature. caterpillars were moving about, and had already made a show of a hole in the cabbage-leaf. They had broken from the Butterfly’s eggs!

Book Coordinator: Sandra Luna. Parables From Nature is a collection of short stories which were originally published as 4 separate volumes. They are inspired from Nature and written for children. Nevertheless, Gatty uses children's literature because she knows that in doing so, she can reach a wider group of readers and point out problems from the Victorian Age. (Summary by sailormoon).

I am using this book as part of a homeschool curriculum. My oldest (age 10) just finished it; my middle child is about 1/3 of the way through through; and my youngest will begin next year (around age 7) . These stories seem simple enough—maybe even a little quaint. The language is challenging, no doubt about that. The first year with my oldest, I wondered how she could possibly get anything out of these stories. I could barely understand. It turns out, she understood them better than I did. Over time, we both got used to the language (which, incidentally, has made reading other challenging texts much easier), and it flowed more and more easily. As I have read them to my oldest over the last three years, I am surprised by how deeply they have affected me and my kids. They bring the stories up in conversation. They relate them to things that are going on in their own lives. I find myself thinking through them at odd moments. In fact, the resolution of the robin has become my own declaration in the last two years.

If you are willing to do the work, if you can trust your kids and train them how to work through the text, if you can be patient with what you don't know, you will be well-rewarded. If you are looking for a quick skim, an easy little moral tale, or if you think that kids need simplified language to hold their interest, this probably isn't the book for you. It makes you work for your rewards. They are, however, well-worth the effort they require.
Note: I always forget that Amazon lumps all the reviews of the same book together, no matter the edition. My review is specifically regarding the Living Book Press edition.
Excellent quality! I'm using this book as part of my homeschool year. So many reprinted public domain books use OCR and are full of errors; this one was obviously put together with care and attention to detail.
What a terrific book! The parables are deep, the morals are sound and traditional, but these aren't preachy a bit. And the use of nature to teach us about ourselves is perfect.

This is a wee bit advanced for my 5 y/o, but I can see a slightly older child enjoying it. And as an adult, I have loved it and passed it on to a friend already.
As an adult, I found it beautiful and moving. It's a true treasure trove of wisdom to be found in the creation. However, I was reading this with my children as a part of our schooling, and some of my children could hardly stand it. I think it is a book you appreciate more as you have more experience with life.
This is a good edition, the lay out and feel of the paper are nice. Stories are nature based moral tales, it seems like they would have been appropriate Sunday reading long ago.
It was way more then I expected. I looked up the author to thank her but she has passed away, long ago.
A fun book about relaying the habits and personality of our backyard friends into life lessons for living, to train our youth in being good citizens.
Wonderful, complete collection of Parables From Nature. My daughter and I both love these stories.
