The Little One's Own Album. Edited by Mrs. Elizabeth Day.

(Dean and Son), contains a great variety of simple stories, verses, &c., and gaily coloured pictures. It contains the collected issue of the Little One's Own Coloured Picture Paper.—Other similar volumes are The Animal World (Partridge and Co.), a publication which we heartily welcome as the organ of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and fulfilling its function of an "Advocate of Humanity ;" and The Band of Mercy comes from the same source, and has the same object and claim to respect.
