Children’s First Reader: Child Life 1913

Among my collection of vintage primers and first readers for children I came across one from 1913 called “Child Life, A First Reader.” Except for a few torn pages mended with tape, now turned brown, and some water stains the book is still in good condition.I really like this old book not only for the writing; but, for the beautifully illustrated drawings. (see illustrations below)
