Book Description

Originally published in 1937. This book is ‘an account of the special training necessary for the young boy or girl in letter-making and simple reading’. The book uses ‘Basic English’, the 850 words of which are included specifically for reference, as a suggested starting point for the teaching of reading and writing, and presents a system for teachers to teach letters by pictures. The order of the letters in the main section of the book is from simplest form to most difficult with a later section showing them in alphabetical order. This is a superb insight into educational history and a fascinating early explanation of a now common method.
