Little Susy's Six Teachers by Elizabeth Prentiss.

The book referred to was Little Susy' s Six Teachers. It was published in the spring, and at once took its place beside the Six Birthdays in the hearts of the children; a place it still continues to hold. The six teachers are Mrs. Love, Mr. Pain, Aunt Patience, Mr. Ought, Miss Joy, and the angel Faith. At the end of six years they hold a meeting and report to little Susy's parents what they have been doing.—The Life and Letters of Elizabeth Prentiss (1882).
