  <p>EFORE we go anywhere else, we must first have a look at our own dear native land.</p>
  <p>Many people pack up their boxes and trunks, and rush off to see other countries, without knowing anything about the land in which they
    live. They can tell long stories of what they have seen in Italy and France; but when you come to ask them about their own country, they cannot say anything, We will take care, my little one, not to be like them. What is the name of the country in which we live?</p>
  <p>It is called England, and when Scotland and Wales are added to it, it goes by the name of Great Britain.</p>
  <p>Now look for it on the map. Here it is on the left hand. You will notice that the water goes all around it; it is therefore called an island. We are not going to speak of the whole island, however, just at present.</p>
  <p>By-and-by we shall visit Scotland and Wales. We must keep just now only to England. Does it not look a tiny place? It is only 400 miles long, and 360 miles broad; yet it is very dear to us, because it is our home. Although it is so small, English people have found their way all over the world. England is a great motherland. She has many children in places called Colonies, all of which look up to her with love and respect, as they have sprung from her.</p>
