The Boys and Girls Book of Science free pdf Excerpt from The Boys and Girls Book of Science My dear boys and girl, -When I was your age there were no such children's books as there are now. Those which we had were few and dull, and the pictures in them ugly and mean, while you have your choice of books without number, clever, amusing, and pretty, as well as really instructive, on subjects which were only talked of fifty years ago by a few learned men, and very little understood even by them. So if mere reading of books would make wise men, you ought to grow up much wiser than us old fellows. But mere reading of wise books will not make you wise men- you must use for yourselves the tools with which books are made wise, and that-is your eyes and ears and common sense. Now, among those very stupid old-fashioned boys' books was one which taught me that, and therefore I am more grateful to it than if it had been as full of wonderful pictures as all the natural history books you ever saw. Its name was "Evenings at Home," and in it was a story called "Eyes and No Eyes," a regular old-fashioned, prim, sententious story- and it began thus: - "Well, Robert, where have you been walking this afternoon?" said Mr. Andrews to one of his pupils at the close of a holiday. Oh, Robert had been to Broom Heath and round by Camp Mount, and home through the meadows. But it was very dull. He hardly saw a single person. He had much rather have gone by the turnpike road. Presently in comes Master William, the other pupil, dressed, I suppose, as wretched boys used to be dressed forty years ago, in a frill collar and skeleton monkey-jacket, and tight trousers buttoned over it and hardly coming down to his ankles, and low shoes which always came off in sticky ground- and terribly dirty and wet he is- but he never, he says, had such a pleasant walk in his life, and he has brought home his handkerchief (for boys had no pockets in those days much bigger than keyholes) full of curiosities.
