    Toni, the Little Woodcarver

Toni, the Little Woodcarver

A little story of Swiss peasant life by the author of Heidi. “The popular author of ‘Heidi’ here writes another charming tale of the Alps. Its scene is the Bernese Oberland, and its characters the simple mountaineers and village folk whom Miss Spyri knows so well. Toni, the central figure, is a little goat-herder who longs to develop his gift of wood carving. How his fondest wish is gratified is the theme of the story. Every child will like it for its direct simplicity – and older readers as well.” -Publishers Weekly “Another Alpine story by an author who has already become beloved by the children. Her stories are told in a simple, sympathetic way which holds the attention. The life of little Toni and his mother in their stone hut on the mountain side and later the opportunity which came to this gentle little boy to develop his passion for carving animals are brought out with the same charm which has characterized the earlier stories.” -American Childhood, Volumes 4-5, 1919 Toni, the Little Woodcarver will capture and hold children's interest while developing their reading skills and deepening their appreciation of the world's great stories.

Uncle Titus and His Visit to the Country

The daily promenaders who moved slowly back and forth every afternoon under the shade of the lindens on the eastern side of the pretty town of Karlsruhe were very much interested in the appearance of two persons who had lately joined their ranks. It was beyond doubt that the man was very ill. He could only move slowly and it was touching to see the care with which his little companion tried to make herself useful to him. He supported himself with his right hand on a stout stick, and rested his left upon the the shoulder of the child at his side, and one could see that he needed the assistance of both. From time to time he would lift his left hand and say gently, "Tell me, my child, if I press too heavily upon you." Instantly, however, the child would catch his hand and press it down again, assuring him,
