Excerpt from First Reader

The essential characteristics of a first reader are the same as those Of a good primer, - vitally interesting sub jcet-matter, an effective system, and an attractiveness in the book itself that will arrest the child's attention and hold his interest.

Subject-matter. - The stories used in this book all deal with things that have been found to be intensely inter esting to children; and they are told in language and in a style pleasing to children. Another feature of the mate rial is its Wide variety. As a result appeal is made to the widely differing temperaments among children, as well as to their various moods. The serious, the humorous, the pathetic, the real, the imaginative, the moral, - all find a place. In other words, the stories make a many sided appeal to the child; and, consequently, lead to symmetrical mental development.

Method. The method of teaching reading that under lies this book does not lay principal stress on the learning of a vocabulary, - a task which at best is irksome to the average child. The plan followed is simple, interesting, and extremely effective. The child is told the story by his teacher; he is led to talk about it, to tell it and retell it, till it becomes thoroughly his own, till he uses all the words freely and naturally in conversation. As soon ashe has learned to tell the story ?uently, he undertakes to read the undertaking is a comparatively easy matter. The stories in the book are divided into natural units, so that it is an easy matter to take each lesson as a story in itself; while the several units, taken together, form a kind of serial story, which continually leads the child's interest forward. Finally, the child learns to write about the story he has read.

Illustrations. The pictures in the book are an essen tial part of the method. Their attractiveness, of course, adds to their value. In the study of the story before the class undertakes to read at all, the pictures form the basis of interesting conversational exercises, which both develop the child's power of Observation and make free use Of his imagination. All of this tends toward naturalness and force of expression.
