Item description for The New-England Primer: Boston 1777; Patriotic Textbook Series (Patriotic Textbook Series) by Vision Forum...

Overview
The single most influential Christian textbook in history. Most scholars agree that most, if not all, of the Founding Fathers were taught to read and write using this volume which is unsurpassed to this day for its excellence of practical training and Christian worldview. First published in 1690, the goal of the Primer was to combine the study of the Bible with the alphabet, vocabulary, and the reading of prose and poetry. This is the book that introduced the children's prayer, "Now I lay me down to sleep," and which made the "Shorter Catechism" a staple of education for American children. More than five million copies were sold in the nineteenth century alone. Facsimile edition written with older modern-English characters authentic to the founding era.

Reviews - What do customers think about The New-England Primer?

Great, but...  Feb 24, 2010
If you are looking for the original then this is it. The language is original to the time period, for example, "s"'s are printed as what we now use as "f"'s. Makes for struggled reading until you adapt to it. If you are wanting to use this for home education you may want the David Barton version which states to be updated language. I have not seen it but think that is the one I should have gotten.
 
A great peak into history...  Feb 15, 2010
This is a great look into the history of our nation. If you are interested in knowing what the great founders of our nation used to educate their children, get this book!
 
buy it  Jan 30, 2010
i love this little book. every household should own one. this is the single most used text book when America was first born. a shame it's probably "expelled" from public schools today
 
Better Than Expected  Nov 23, 2009
This is a great little pocket book with attractive hard cover and original text. Would make a nice gift. It is something to be treasured.
Reading it gives you great insight into what schoolchildren were taught way back when our country was founded. I think it would be great for Christian homeschoolers.
It's a little hard to read because the text has "f" for "s" such as "fpeak" instead of "speak". Overall a great buy and a great find!
