Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

Mott Media has republished the 1830's version of the McGuffey Readers with the original Christian content. How would McGuffey teach reading if he were here today? His first concern would be that the content should promote moral growth and excellence of mind in habits, attitudes, and literary tastes. McGuffey also believed in phonics for beginning reading. McGuffey believed in memorizing as a way to develop habits of attention that promote understanding and mastery of all learning. McGuffey believed that an obvious result of a cultivated mind is a wide vocabulary. These principles produced the education that shaped American character, particularly in the West, for over one hundred years.

    I bought this series for my grandchildren who attend public school. I wanted them to see the books used by American schools long ago and how different life was when children freely learned about the Lord. I'm so glad this series has been reprinted in it's original format. I didn't want the series with political correctness and God edited out. The children see and hear plenty of that kind of material. Thank you for making these readers available!

    I've only seen and read a copy of the Eclectic Third Reader and yet am already impressed! I plan to buy the whole series soon and perhaps, when I do, I may rate the series better!
