Nursery rhymes, stories and music.
It is astonishing at what an early age our children of this machine era are fascinated by mechanical things, and how soon even tiny children come to discriminate between the different kinds of vehicles they see going by them in the streets. How quickly, for instance, they distinguish a car from a van and a van from a lorry, and one kind of lorry from another. William, in the story by Diana Ross to be told today and tomorrow by Julia Lang, favours a sugar lorry - until one day he has an adventure that changes his allegiance.
'The Family Wanted a Holiday,' by Elizabeth Coleman, which Daphne Oxenford will relate on Wednesday and Thursday, weaves a fantasy of a different kind, for the family is a family of dolls; while to discover the secret of 'The Box Under the Table' by Ruth Ainsworth, our under fives must listen on Friday when the storyteller will be Dorothy Smith.
(Elizabeth A. Taylor)
