 HOW THE SQUIRREL BECAME A SQUGG:
Lucy’s collection retained the use of ‘randomness’ as far as genre and subject matter was concerned, but arranged the stories in order of difficulty for the reader, both in terms of the language used and the lesson being taught.
Aikin and Barbauld had certainly been concerned with catching their reader’s attention, keeping their interest, and providing entertainment, but for them and for many subsequent writers for both children and working men, entertainment had to be mingled with serious material.
Lucy Aikin’s rearrangement was intended for a new mode of family reading that was individual and silent, rather than aloud in a group.

 Critical and Historical Essays, Volume 2 - The Life and Writings of Addison
Now, we mean no reproach to Miss Aikin, and many will think that we pay her a compliment, when we say that her studies have taken a different direction.
The consequence is that she has had to describe men and things without having either a correct or a vivid idea of them, and that she has often fallen into errors of a very serious kind.
Miss Aikin has discovered a letter, from which it appears that, while Addison resided at Oxford, he was one of several writers whom the booksellers engaged to make an English version of Herodotus; and she infers that he must have been a good Greek scholar.

 Prose Works of Anna Letitia Barbauld: Attribution of Sir Bertrand
This essay and tale appear in Miscellaneous Pieces, in Prose published by "J. and A. Aikin" (London: J. Johnson, 1773) and is not attributed to Barbauld by Lucy Aikin in her memoir accompanying the 1825 Works.
However, it was popularly attributed to Barbauld,* and I believe I have seen somewhere mention of a pamphlet published by Joseph Johnson containing only the tale with Barbauld's name on it.
Lucy Aikin was indeed very careful to document and collect all her aunt’s contributions to the collection called Miscellaneous Pieces, in Prose and Verse that Barbauld and her brother John wrote and published jointly in 1773.
