« The Primer, or First Reader.” It begins with lessons as easy as those in the last part of that book. The pieces gradually become more difficult, yet they are not too hard for sure and rapid progress.
Great care has been taken to present interesting and attractive lessons. A sufficient proportion of these convey information, and may be considered object lessons. They treat, for the most part, of objects which the child sees around him.
The moral feelings and the imagination are also frequently appealed to. Love and obedience to parents, and kindness to the inferior animals, are inculcated by many of the pieces in both prose and verse.
It has constantly been the aim of the compilers to exclude every thing which might be objectionable to a correct literary taste
No questions are appended to the lessons, for there are very few teachers who would not prefer to frame their own questions. The intelligent teacher will find no difficulty in constructing, for each lesson, as many questions as may be desired, and in arousing by these more interest than by a set of printed questions, to which the pupils learn the answers and nothing more.
The Exercises in Enunciation are such as can be easily used by young children with the aid of the teacher. They should receive daily attention.
The Illustrations have been designed by Billings, and engraved by Andrews. It is believed that they will prove very attractive to the young pupil.
