TO WE R' S


LITTLE


FOR THE


YOUNGEST CLASS IN PRIMARY SCHOOLS.


SV Ama As. ?D 3ai.


BOSTON:
BROWN, TAGGARD & CHASE.
1857.








I














Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1867, by
ANNA E. TOWER,
In the Clerk's Office of the District Court for the District of Massachusetts.













BLrOTROTYTPD AT THE
BOSTON STEBROTTPS FOUNDBT.











PREFACE.




STEACHERS will observe that only a FEW LETTERS at a
time are given to the pupil, and with them words formed
of those few letters. Thus the alphabet is presented to
a child in detached portions, and each successive portion
practically used in words before the next is learned.
This method is claimed as a peculiar feature of this
book, except so far as it is used in the "GRADUAL
PRIMER."
The alphabets at the beginning of the book are for
those who prefer to teach in the old way, and for all to
learn the old order of arrangement.
No word is used in the book till it has first been given
to the pupil in a spelling lesson.
This book will be an easy introduction to t "GRAD-
UAL PRIMER," the First Reader of Tower's Series; also
to his PICcTOAL PRIMER;" and, in short, to any Series
of readers.
It is especially designed for the LOWEST CLASS in the
primary schools, to encourage children by making their
first step simple, easy, attractive, and interesting.
JANUARY, 1857.
