In 1823, Charlotte Mary Yonge was born at Otterbourne in Hampshire, England. Her charitable parents built the first Sunday School on the grounds of Otterbourne and gave her a religious education. She began to teach at the age of seven and continued in her parents footsteps in educating the poor. Her first writings were for Sunday School children. She continued her writing and teaching into adulthood; her writing as prolific as it was loved. Still loved today, here are some of the works she wrote for children.
