Item description for Noah Webster's Advice to the Young and Moral Catechism by Noah Webster, Gary Overacre & Wallbuilders...
Overview Noah Webster was an influential Founding Father, serving as a soldier during the American Revolution and as a legislator in two states after the Revolution. He was the first Founding Father to call for a Constitutional Convention and was personally responsible for the copyright clause found in Article I, Section 8, of the U.S. Constitution. Like most of the Founding Fathers, Webster understood that the ability of our new government to endure would depend upon the quality of our educational system. Consequently, he became a leading educator and for almost six decades authored textbooks designed to transmit to subsequent generations the principles embodied in the government he had helped create. Two works he authored to help train future generations were his "Moral Catechism" (1783), and later his "Advice to the Young". These two powerful works are reprinted in this booklet and are beneficial not only for America's current students, but for former students never exposed to these words in their school textbooks. Recommended for ages 10 and up.

The Father of Education in America Mar 19, 2007
I really enjoyed learning about the life of Noah Webster. It is a shock to me that Noah Webster is not widely recognized as the father of education in America as a result of all of his contributions, both during and after his lifetime. I found this book to be an excellent source for learning about the history of education and government in America. It helped me to develop a deeper appreciation for them, too.
Advice to All not just the Young is appropriate Mar 18, 2006
This book gives readers insight into one of our founding fathers - Noah Webster's tireless efforts for copyright laws ended up in our Constitution. (Article I, Section 8) - as well as giving advice to the young (and old alike).
If you want to find out what our founding fathers actually thought and taught, read this book! VBS
The "proof" of God is excellent Sep 4, 2005
One noteworthy feature of this short book:
Noah Webster leads the reader from observing the world, to seeing it as proof that God exists. He does it simply, but not simplistically. This book is a tiny gem.
Outstanding Source of education for anyone! Oct 25, 2002
What a refreshing surprise to discover that Noah Webster, the father of our dictionary, was such a devote man of God! The only down side to his story in shaping American education by biblical standards is how far we have fallen from these lofty heights. Could you imagine Mr. Webster walking into one of our modern `Government training camps'? (called public schools!) He'd call for a second revolution! Any mention of the bible today in our schools is taboo and strictly prohibited. Most of our educators come from a humanistic background that rejects the absolute and denies that God even exists. It's no wonder the crime rate among our youth is astronomical and immorality at epidemic levels. With our churches compromised and the truth fallen in the streets, what are the young people to do but drown in this sea of iniquity. Our nation has gone from being firmly grounded in the principles of Christianity to absolute chaos. I urge every parent to learn from our forefathers, withdraw your children from these decadent schools and get them focused on the things above before it's eternally too late. Webster may not have been a clergyman of his time, but his grasp of Scripture is above and beyond MOST preachers of our day. On the issues of saving faith, heart purity and rightness of life, he is light years ahead of our modern pulpit parrots. Today men stand in pulpits and tell people they can deny Christ & He won't deny them, that they can live like the devil and still inherit the Kingdom and even blow their brains out! Webster would call them reprobates and indeed be speaking the truth. His lessons are timeless, based on God's Word, not men's opinions. It would behoove any young person to take them to heart and ensure their entrance into the eternal kingdom.
