Mother's '- Home Life What Becomes of Sonny's Work By Mabel R. Young Sonny now goes to school, and almost every day brings home some little article he has made. H-Se conies home, full of en- thusiasi over his work, telling just how it was done, how long it took him, and above all. how carefully he did it. There is pinde in his voice as he tells you about it---pride in his bearing as he shows his prize; for his work has meant thought, effort, and painstaking care. What becomes of his handiwork? Probably it is praised, then laid aside, to be lost or even thrown away. At first Sonany is surprised and just a little disap- Pointed when his work is thus disregarded. Then he reaches the "don't care" stage, where he often throws his pictures or card- board toys in the street oii the way home. Finally his schoolwork is done in a care- less, hap-hazard imanner; for it has be- come a mere task to be done. There is no longer any incentive to much effort. What can we do about it? Here is one mother's idea. Make A suf- ficiently large book of heavy brown %vrap- ping-paper. either sewing it together or fastening it with small clips in order that additional pages can be added as desired. lave sections for drawing, cuttings, folded arti-les and pictures. Let Sonny take full charge of his book, and paste in each day's work after it has had due admira- Iion. to keep it clean and safe. He will take great care of his book. in- eed he will be prouder of it than of the most expensive volume you could buy him; for th'is is his own, his very own work, and lroves to him what his young hands can do. rhen not only will Soinny himself enjoy the book. It will be a delight to younger brothers or sisters. Many an otherwise iuill hour will be joale bright and happy. as together they inspect its contents, and big brother re-makes their favorite articles for them, just as he learned to do "in school.- \"ERY woman looks forward Eto the time when she shall One Farmer's W ife become a happy bride-the greatest adventtsre of her From Page 13 lifc.
