To teach Philippina to read, the Queen wrote a book of stories about flowers and cats and carrots and bees. She drew the pictures also. The widows and orphans began to listen to the Queen's stories and began making their own books.

Est-il justifié de présenter aux fillettes ce portrait généralisé du mâle oppresseur, ennemi de la femme? Nous ne pouvons, logiquement, recommander un ouvrage porteur de préjugés, fussent-ils pour ou contre l'un ou l'autre sexe. Ne recommandons pas
