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. William Holmes McGuffey, outstanding 19th century educator and preacher, combined both of his God-given talents in the preparation of these early textbooks. Millions of copies were sold in their original Christ-centered form. The character of our Nation was molded in an upright manner through the repeated use of these textbooks over several generations.

In order to capture the true spirit of the original McGuffey's Eclectic Readers, no major content changes have been made. While this edition of the authentic Readers is being presented in a more easily readable form, the stories, poems, and pictures appear as they did in the first edition. Slight changes have taken place for the sake of clarification. However, no changes have been made in editorial content.

  • Eclectic Progressive Speller

If Rev. McGuffey were teaching today, he'd still focus on godly content that promotes moral growth and a well-developed mind! Introduce your children to his 19th-century classics, which stress phonics, memorization, and progressive vocabulary building. Students begin with the alphabet and one-syllable words in the Pictorial Primer and by high school they're learning about Napoleon and Wilberforce in the Fourth Reader. Slight clarifying changes maintain the spirit of the originals. 1408 pages total, seven slipcased hardcovers from Mott Media.
