It uses shocking imagery to teach children simple lessons. It was first published in 1844.
1) Be good if you want Christmas presents
2) Have good hygiene
3) Don't be cruel to animals
4) Don't play with matches
5) Treat people of all races with kindness
6) Be alert when hunting ??
7) Don't suck your thumb
8) Eat your soup
