Item description for The New England Primer by Wallbuilders Press...

The New England Primer was the first textbook ever printed in America and was used to teach reading and Bible lessons in our schools until the twentieth century. In fact, many of the Founding Fathers and their children learned to read from The New England Primer. This pocket-size edition is an historical reprint of the 1777 version used in many schools during the Founding Era. This version uses the Old English alphabet, exactly as it was printed, and the letter "s" is sometimes represented by an "s" and other times by what appears to be an "f." If you would like a simplified version, the Contemporary New England Primer (also available through our store) has been standardized to the single modern "s." A great resource for homeschoolers or for use in any classroom.

Reviews - What do customers think about New England Primer?

Best Seller for Early America  Feb 8, 2008
The 1777 Primer was the text for the children of Early America. The only book, besides the Bible, that was found in every home and used by every student. The alphabet, prayers and lessons were memorized and studied by all the grades from Kindergarten to six the grade.

The publisher has done an excellent job in reprinting The Primer. After reading the primer we bought seven copies for friends and family. I would like to see a copy in every home again.
Amazing!  May 31, 2007
Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God...the Lord's Prayer...the young Infant's or Child's morning and evening prayers...A Dialogue between CHRIST,Youth,and the Devil. The New England Primer, Improved for the more easy attaining the true reading of English. To which is added;The Assembly of Divines, and Mr. Cotton's Catechism.
This was foundational material in the educational training of the Founding Fathers.
This is the foundation that God blessed in our nation's history. A totally opposite worldview was instilled in the youth of the past, as compared to what is taught today. What an amazing treasure this little book is.
A must have!  May 14, 2007
This is a great reference book to help us learn what the first schools in America taught. This book is referenced in the The Truth Project by Focus On The Family which goes in to much more detail about where our school system started and where it is today. To see how Christianity started the American school system get this book and read it. Hopefully this will provoke more thought about why our government is taking/has taken Christianity out of American schools.
A real eye opener  May 9, 2007
We heard about this small book and have now bought more than 30 or them. When we show it to our friends, they all want one. People have bought them for their children, grandchildren, and as gifts. It is the perfect illustration of the religious and Christian roots of our nation. It is incredible to think that this was a public school text! Buy it, and share it with your family and friends.
Great Resource for Everyone  Mar 9, 2007
Excellent product...should be implemented within public school systems. My children love the questions and the memory verses. No wonder this product was instrumental in the production of many of this country's great men and women.
