This is the second book by Rev. John S. C. Abbott. It, too, is an old book (which can be found online since it is in the public domain) and I wanted to get it into a more printable, readable, and usable format. This book was originally published in 1833...and its contents still apply to children today.
From the Preface:
"This book is intended for the children of those families to which The Mother at Home has gone. It is prepared with the hope that it may exert an influence upon the minds of the children, in exciting gratitude for their parents' love, and in forming characters which shall ensure future usefulness and happiness."
