Shame orders can't come complete May 17, 2007
The set of books will be beautiful, if I ever get the complete set. The set I was shipped was incomplete. Packed Incomplete from the publisher I assume. It is a seven book set and I was sent six. I was told another set was being sent to me, and I hope I live to see them. It has been over a month since this all started.
There is no excuse that I can think of for a set to be plastic wrapped from a source, and for the set to be incomplete.
I'm sure that this will not be posted.
THE book to teach reading Apr 16, 2007
I just bought these books for my four year old neighbor's granddaughter. I used them with my son and he was reading and writing (albiet phonetically) by the time he was 3 1/2. Unless a child is dyslexic or has an auditory learning disability, McGuffey is The Way. This is how children learned to read before everyone got 'so smart'. The school systems would be be smarter if they went back to this.
Beautiful words Feb 14, 2007
I love the stories and poems. They warm the hearts of my children as well as my own. They are tender, thoughtful, wholesome, without any glut or glitter. But they do sparkle with beauty and they fill the mind with goodness. Other reviewers have brought to light that there is an anti-semetic theme in some of the stories for older children. So far, I have not found even a hint of this type of sentiment. Even if there was, and if it was a minor allusion to such sentiment, rather than an overiding theme, I would teach my children that it's wrong.
Back to basics Jan 17, 2007
I bought these for a friend who teaches an intro to teaching course. He uses them to emphasize a back to basics approach to reading and values. The binding is sturdy but a bit cheaper and flashier than I anticipated.
Absolutely wonderful Jan 3, 2007
You can't go wrong with these books! I thought after receiveing them that my son might not like them because they don't have that "new" look of more modern books. No bright pages or colorful illustrations. But I was very wrong. My kids love these books and they help with struggling readers in a way you can't even imagine. The pages are sequenced in such a manner that they make sense to little ones beginning to read. I love them and will teach all four of my children to read using these books!
