The Nest in the Honeysuckles, and other Stories/Project Gutenberg

Click here.

Published in 1855 by the American Sunday School Union in Eastern Pennsylvania. Moral tales and character education. "No books are published by the American Sunday-School Union without the sanction of the Committee of Publication, consisting of fourteen members, from the following denominations of Christians, viz. Baptist, Methodist, Congregational, Episcopal, Presbyterian, Lutheran, and Reformed Dutch. Not more than three of the members can be of the same denomination, and no book can be published to which any member of the Committee shall object."

This book reminds of the Pathway Mennonite readers. Good wholesome teaching stories; however this one also has discussions. There is one story for boys which discusses how to be a gentleman by following the example of George Washington. They just don't make books like this anymore.
