THE FIRST DAYS OF MAN: The Origin Of Civilization - Narrated For Young Readers

This carefully crafted ebook: "THE FIRST DAYS OF MAN" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents."Every child, between the ages of five and fifteen, seeks by constant questioning to grasp the fundamental facts upon which our whole fabric of present-day knowledge is based. These facts, painfully gathered by the human race during its many centuries of development, must of necessity be absorbed by the child within the short space of some ten or twelve years. It is a prodigious task, and one in which the growing mind should be afforded every possible assistance. Two courses are usually adopted by parents; one, to dismiss the child's questions with the stock phrase, "You are not old enough to understand," the other, to place in his hands some so-called book of knowledge, containing, it is true, a great mass of information which the child should possess, but usually so badly presented, so jumbled together, that no one fact has any bearing on another, and thus the child is left to turn from "Why the ocean is salt?" to "What is a lightning rod?" without the least understanding of the principles and laws which underly these and all other facts, and link them together in a composite whole." – Frederic Arnold Kummer ("The First Days of Man")Frederic Arnold Kummer (1873-1943) was an American author, playwright and screen writer. He wrote in various genres including spy and international mysteries, detective novels, romances and non-fiction. Under the pseudonym Arnold Fredericks he wrote a series of mysteries featuring the detective Richard Duvall.
