 "The subject-matter is of permanent value, culled from the folklore of the primitive races; the vocabulary, based upon that of the Hiawatha, is increased gradually, and the new words and phrases will add to the child's power of expression. The naïve explanations of the phenomena of nature given by the primitive races appeal to the child's wonder about the same phenomena, and he is pleased and interested. These myths will gratify the child's desire for complete stories, and their intrinsic merit makes them valuable for oral reproduction.
 The stories have been adapted to youthful minds from myths contained in the works of many students of folklore whose scholarship is undisputed."

 Les récits ont été adaptés aux esprits jeunes à partir des mythes contenus dans les œuvres de nombreux étudiants du folklore dont l'érudition est incontestée.")
