The Animal World, A Book of Natural History
by Theodore Wood
Publisher: The University Society 1909
Number of pages: 508
This volume is a sketch of the animal life of the whole world. More than a sketch it could not be in the space at the author's command; but he has so skilfully selected his examples to illustrate both the natural groups and the faunas which they represent, that his work forms a most commendable ground-plan for the study of natural history.

People have always been able to work and build wonderful things, using just their muscles. And they can do a very great deal more when they use their brains, too. They can invent machines to make work thousands of times easier and faster.

America is a land of trees. They grow almost everywhere in our country. Most of us see them so often that we sometimes forget how important they are. You can think of many things that we wouldn't have if there were no trees.
