ANN: And Her Little Book

American Sunday School Union, Philadelphia, PA, 1800’s

Following is a wonderful story that was put out in the 1800’s by the American Sunday School Union. A faith-based story that still rings true for Christians today, this short story can inspire and delight any child (of any age).

Founded in 1824 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the American Sunday School Union (ASSU) had as its mission the promotion of Sunday schools and early literacy and the spiritual development of children.

The ASSU was a significant publisher and provider, of books and periodicals for children and played a role in shaping the direction of 19th century children’s literature in America.

Ann was a little girl, who loved her book; and so she soon learned to read. A nice book was given to her at Sunday School, and when she went home, she sat on a little bench and read it to her parents; they were glad to have so good a child, and Ann was happy, as all children may be, who love to please God by trying to be good. Turn the leaves of this book and and see what Ann read.

Rose Flower

An R and O and S and E, Spell the flower which you here see.
Now when you pull a pretty ROSE from the green bush on which it grows,
Then say how very kind is HE,
Who makes the flowers and blesses me.

Bee Hive

With H and I and V and E,
Spell the HIVE of the busy bee,
Which sucks the honey from the flower,
And never spends and idle hour.
Children, try and be busy, too
And seek some use in what you do.

Ark

With A and R and K, now spell  ARK.
Once a very great rain fell;
But because Noah was very good,
The ARK was his home in the flood;
When the flood was gone see Noah raise
His hands, the great, kind God to praise.

A, G, I, R and L,
Are the letters A GIRL will spell.
Now no this little picture look,
And see a girl with her book,
Sitting by a kind mothers side,
She wants to know why Jesus died.

The Bible

Her mother says, this book will tell
And so we all should love it well.
B and I and B, L, E,
Are letters we should like to see;
For they spell BIBLE, which God gave,
To tell how Jesus died, our souls to save.

Tom Steady, A Pretty History for GOOD CHILDREN

Tom Steady e-book cover
Tom Steady, A Pretty History for GOOD CHILDREN

This is a cute, Christian story about a fictional character named Tom Steady – a good boy. The book encourages children to be good,loving people, to listen to their parents and teachers and does so with Biblical references. Great for Sunday School teachers or church youth groups.

The exact year of publication is uncertain, but it is known that this series was published between 1833 and 1845 by the American Tract Company.

From the first page of Tom Steady:

“This is the cottage where Tom Steady lived. I am going to tell you his history. In the first place, I have to say that he was kind to his sisters. When little boys are kind to their sisters, I have always found that little girls tried to make their brothers happy. ‘He that loveth God, loveth his brother also.'”

This e-book has been adapted from the original series put out in the mid-1800’s. The original book is now part of the public domain.

This version has been completely retyped and created with modern digital means for a more palatable read. The illustrations are original; however, they have been digitally altered slightly to correct blemishes and make them more pleasing to the eye. You can still see that the illustrations are very old, but too much altering would have taken away from the original creation.

Your e-book will be available to you as soon as your payment is processed. You will receive a link via e-mail to download the book in PDF format. Nothing will be mailed to you with this order.

In the grand scheme of life, the goodness encouraged by books such as this is treasured and timeless.

Download this loving e-book F*R*E*E!

The paleo (short for paleolithic) blueprint e-book is, in essence, an eight page e-book that gives a good crash course in the paleolithic diet, also known as the cave man diet.

Gastroenterologist Walter L. Voegtlin first popularized the Paleo diet in the 1970’s. He argued in, “The Stone Age Diet,” humans as carnivores, chiefly needs fats, proteins and a small amount of carbohydrates for optimum performance. For the last 30 years, obesity has been increasing in the United States.

Our modern diets are laden with preservatives, processed sugars, and fried foods. Today’s health crisis has led to a renewed interest in Voegtlin’s tested approach to healthy living.

Paleolithic recipes are: grain-free, bean-free, potato-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free.  It is, as mentioned, often referred to as a “raw diet” or the “Caveman diet”.

Ingredients used in  a paleolithic diet are: Meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, nuts and berries.

This free paleo blueprint gives you a crash course on practicing a Paleolithic style diet. But you’ll learn all of this in a very short time with our 8-page e-book that includes handy reference charts and basic guidance for practicing this dietary lifestyle.
