Parables from Nature by Mrs. Alfred GattyI cannot say enough about Parables from Nature by Margaret Scott Gatty. What a treasure! Mrs. Gatty wrote with a wonderful prose style, and included many encouraging morals which are a joy to share with children. The stories , which seek to uncover God’s craftsmanship in the natural world, are challenging, rich and complex. The writing and vocabulary are quite sophisticated, making it best for children in third grade or higher. I find the book challenging and enjoyable as an adult. Its a great book to glean ideas from and stretch their intellect, imagination and understanding. It is a refreshing read and a book I’ll read more than one time, for sure. I would say be careful which edition you purchase. The book which I am reviewing was laid out very nicely (see the picture attached), but there are apparently some shoddy replicated versions out there.

Parables from nature by Mrs. Alfred Gatty Scattering foam and spray upon the moss and flowers that graced its edge. There is in these works of Nature, which seem to puzzle reason, something divine, and hath more in it than the eye of a common spectator doth discover. Paul himself led the way to such a mode of instruction, in arguing the possibility of the resurrection of the body from the resurrection of vegetable life out of a decayed [Page] seed: "Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened except it die! Assuredly, the changes of the silkworm, and the renewal of life from vegetable seed, are not more remarkable than the soaring butterfly rising from the earth grub—a change which, were the caterpillar a reasonable being, capable of contemplating its own existence, it would reject as an impossible fiction.
