THE SCHOOLS JOURNAL.

Our thanks are due to the Education Department for copies of the first issue of the Schools Journal., which is intended to supplement the reading matter provided for school children. Part one is designed for classes 1 and 2, part 2 for classes 3 and 4, and part for classes d and 6. Each booklet consists of 16 pages, and the paper and type used are alike of the best —there is no danger of the juvenile eyesight being injured by the perusal of small print, on thin, dirty-coloured paper. So much for the get-up of the pamphlets. As for the contents, opinions will differ. Poetry, fairy tales, historical sketches' and several articles on Now Zealand, make up the bill of fare. We are certain that not a few teachers wi,ll think they could have done the w6rk much bettor, but the best test will be the way in which little ones take to the journal—if they like it, there is an end to the matter. and after all it is hardly fair to judge the new departure by the first numbers-.
