Excerpt from A First Reader This First Reader is a second book of a basal series, and grades naturally and easily from the Primer. In its preparation great care has been taken to adapt the reading matter to the child's understanding and to awaken and hold his interest. For this reason the sen tenoes are short and clear in thought. Their simplicity will lighten the work of the teacher. Following the plan of the Primer, the use of a limited number of phonograms is emphasized, which, rightly pre sented, will give the child power to recognize quickly each new word. The stories of nature, animal life, home, and coun try are appropriate to the season of the year. They will appeal to the experiences of childhood and develop humane and patriotic feeling. All new words are placed at the beginning of the les sons and repeated as often as possible without sacrificing literary strength. Words from the Primer are freely used, and the Primer vocabulary is introduced at the beginning of this book, that the teacher may use the words for occasional review lessons and language work.
