I received my set and I am very, very impressed with them! It was exciting to open my package and see the boxed set!
First of all, they LOOK and FEEL wonderful. The embossed covers are just like what you would expect of an antique book, and they fit snugly in their slipcover. The engravings are beautiful, and really capture a child's interest in the story. I grew up with these in paperback, and reading them was one of the pleasures of my schooling. I am thrilled to have them in hardcover.
I hope these stay in print a long time, because I'd like to buy each of my children their own set for their own homes someday.
The price is good for the quality of the books, and shipping was faster than I expected.
Thank you so much for this product! These readers are amazing! We are a homeschooling family!...:D We have one son who would rather pull weeds than read..:( - and he's 15! So, we have been searching & praying for along time for something to click with him to get him to WANT to read! And the Lord lead us to these readers! At first he was not willing but once he picked them up......he can not put them down! Thank you so much CBD for helping our son want to learn to love to read! His goal: to read his Bible!...:D
The McGuffey Readers are solid and Christ-centered. They are the cream of curriculum. They encourage a high reading level and help develop moral character. The McGuffey Readers are what I would most recommend for reading and spelling.
We had purchased a set of McGuffey's Eclectic Readers years ago and they were "taken" by a young daughter who had started her young family which grew to five girls. We never saw those books again. When I saw them at your site, it was a given, we had to replace the Readers. The grandson who learned his ABC's and numbers and learned to read at second grade level before Kindergarden, remembered the books and pointed out favorite stories his Grandmother read to him.
