Part Four encompasses Extracts From Older Fiction & Poems. Included is The Kingdom By the Sea, The Sword In the Stone, Tom's Midnight Garden, and The Secret Garden. Altogether there are 96 pieces for your child to love. The type in the front of the book is large; as one goes through the different parts the type gets smaller and the entries are longer. This is a great book for a child to have and enjoy for several years of learning. The binding is white with illustrations all around; the spine ends are lightly bent with a very small tear at the back bottom gutter. The binding is a bit loose, but very intact.
