A look into what the author considered important issues in the upbringing of African American children. Very short stories (some overly-sweet and sentimental, some entertaining) and some verse, mostly aimed at pointing out the dangers of gambling, drinking, smoking, street life and disrespecting one's elders, and extolling the virtues of religion, education, cleanliness, hard work and life insurance.

A children's book, and an easy read. Some dialect, and some nice drawings and photographs in the illustrated versions (see the links in the text file).

If you need more time, please send em a PM, and I will extend the SR period. Partial smooth reads are welcome.
