Item description for The Original McGuffey's Pictorial Eclectic Primer (Eclectic educational series) by Mott Media...
Overview Out-of-print for over 125 years, the original McGuffey's Eclectic Readers are considered educational classics. These books are world renowned for their teaching of reading through the integration of faith with learning. The content of this series will help you develop outstanding reading skills, Christ-centered character, a love for good literature, and impressive speaking abilities. I am sure you will find the original McGuffey's Eclectic Readers to be a valuable teaching tool whether they are used in the public school, Christian school, or for those who choose to teach their children at home. This small volume, intended as a first book for children, will, it is hoped, be found an acceptable aid to little learners in their earliest efforts to ascend the ladder of learning. SIMPLICITY - The lessons contain the most simple words - those with which the EAR of the child is familiar. By the combination of these words in easy sentences, connected with pleasing and impressive pictures, it is designed at once to fix the attention and to interest the mind, and in this way to make the lessons a medium for imparting ideas to the child. PROGRESSION - A careful progression has been preserved, thus leading the little learner forward, step by step, by an easy gradation, which, while it pleases, will at the same time instruct him in the use and meaning of language. SPELLING - Many of the words in the spelling exercises are very often repeated, that the pupil may frequently spell them. Every teacher is aware that repetition is necessary in instructing young children in this branch. This book is intended as an introduction to "McGuffey's Eclectic First Reader."
Publishers Description Republication of the 1830's McGuffey Readers. Begins with the alphabet. Early lessons have simple three and four word sentences of one line each. Progresses to longer sentences and full paragraphs. Original illustrations throughout.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Original McGuffey's Pictorial Eclectic Primer (Eclectic educational series)?
beginning reader Jan 7, 2008
I bought this as a primer for teaching my daughter to read. It has a pictorial alphabet with the words in upper and lower case so your child can read words both ways. Each night we pratice reading from it. Introduces short words and simple sentences that are great for repetition practice. The book progresses nicely from the alphabet, to simple sentences, to paragraphs and eventually short stories. I will definately purchase more McGuffey's after seeing the quality of this one. Binding and cover is very sturdy and nice quality.
