Excerpt from Graded Poetry Readers: Fourth Year
The selections for the lowest grades are addressed primarily to the feeling for verbal beauty, the recog nition of which in the mind of the child is funda mental to the plan of this work. The editors have felt that the inclusion... of critical notes in these little books intended for elementary school children would be not only super¿uous, but, in the degree in which critical comment drew the child's attention from the text, subversive of the desired result. Nor are there any notes on methods. The best way to teach chil dren to love a poem is to read it inspiringly to them. The French say: The ear is the pathway to the heart. A poem should be so read that it will sing itself in the hearts of the listening children.
