Product Description

Many American history books refer to "The New England Primer," a textbook first introduced in Boston in 1690. Early Americans learned to read using this book and the Bible. Some estimate the annual sales at 20,000 copies. Total sales over a hundred and fifty years probably topped 3 million copies. This work helped produce a high level of literate, self-governed citizens who valued liberty and righteousness. This book includes "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep," "The Lord's Prayer," "The Ten Commandments," a rhyming alphabet, a Bible alphabet, two catechisms, Bible questions, a dialogue between Christ, the youth and the devil, and the advice John Rogers gave his nine children before he was martyred for Christ. The text offers instruction in right living with simple sentences like: "Fear God. Tell no lies. Speak the truth." The book has been expanded with nine easy to read stories made up of ninety-nine of the most frequently used words in English.

Part of the Spell to Write and Read (SWR) curriculum.

    First, this book is Fabulous! Practically, it includes all of the phonograms with examples of words in which they are used. It summarizes the most important basic spelling rules (I even learned something here). Also included: A summary of the most frequently used words in the English language; a simple, yet effective plan for teaching reading, writing, and spelling in conjunction; wonderful--WONDERFUL--godly poetry that teaches truths and lessons while being playful and rythmic; superior vocabulary and sentence construction; fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith with Q&A to reinforce understanding; real-life stories of those who have applied God's truths in trial; prayers for children; a "dialogue between Christ, youth, and the Devil" to encourage salvation; and the plan of salvation. All of this is told with the Bible as the inerrant Word of God, from a true Creation perspective (6 days), and with the "f" instead of "s" fixed throughout. Truly a gem! My hubby's having me buy one for each child to use in learning to read, for copy work, in teaching character and Christian truths. If government schools used this one textbook in earnest, our nation would be transformed in a generation!

    I bought this book to go with the "Spell to Write and Read" and "Wise Guide" books and it's wonderful! It has everything you need to know for the English language. If you don't have the other books, it's a great book just to have on hand.
