Excerpt from Children of Other Lands
You all want to cross the ocean in a big steamship, I'm sure. Perhaps some of you are looking forward to going by air some day.
But there is an easier way to travel than that. It is the book way. Without the trouble of packing even an over-night bag, this book will take you to many far away and fascinating lands. Watty Piper hopes that it will do more than that.
One of the pleasantest things about going to new places is making new friends, isn't it? The little folks from far away, whom you will meet in these pages, do not wear clothes like yours. They do not eat the same kind of food. But under their skins, you will find they are not so different from you after all. Surely you can be friends.
And now we're off. A pleasant journey.
