Summary from the Prefatory observe:

My goal in getting ready this booklet on Mythology for
children has been to provide them stable wisdom on
the topic, so far as it's worthwhile to pick im-
mature minds, dependent upon the newest investiga-
tions of students, and to pick the myths utilized in
illustration of the plan, on the way to giving them
interesting tales to learn, with a view to, virtually uncon-
sciously to themselves, lay a company beginning for the
fascinating research of Comparative Mythology, should still
they desire to move extra deeply into it sooner or later.

There is far speak these days as to the authen-
ticity of the files of savage myths. a lot of this
talk turns out to me futile, for a delusion isn't really a hard and fast
entity. every one successive narrator is nearly certain to
vary and enhance just a little the cloth that comes
to him, in response to his personal creative fancy. If,
therefore, a savage fable recorded by way of a white guy
retains the manager features of the savage fable,
in spite of a few fanciful turns given it through him, to the
degree, say, tale of Ovid's keeps these of
a Greek fantasy, it really is to all intents and reasons a savage
myth, and the elaborations might be ignored, as
Ovid's are once we are contemplating Greek Mythology.
I have, consequently, incorporated during this quantity these types
of the myths that appeared so much readable and tasty,
provided the primitive angle of brain and customs have been
fully emphasised.

I. — what's a delusion?
II. — Animals in Primitive Myths
III. — Animals in tradition Myths
IV. — Tree and Plant Myths
V. — Myths of the sunlight, Moon, and Stars
VI. — Myths of the Sky and Air
VII. — Mother-Myths and Child-Myths
