Heavily, if not lushly, illustrated, with Sunday School quizzes at the end of each story, this book lives up to its billing: Both large type and simple sentences are encouraging to beginning readers. Though unannounced in the title, a few Protestant hymns and American patriotic songs are appended. (Nelson, $9.95)
