IT is of the utmost importance that the earliest steps in reading
should be taken in the right direction. The habit of throwing
expression into the sentences from the very first is invaluable; and
this is impossible where the vocabulary is large. With this fact in
mind, I have made my lessons as simple as possible; the average num-
ber of new words being about two and one-quarter to each page.

"To let the new life in, we know
Desire must ope the portal."

The subjects of the lessons have been chosen with an especial view
to interesting the little ones so that their expression will come natu-
rally and spontaneously.
The wise teacher will weave an interest about the earliest lessons,
filling them with thought and meaning of which the printed text shall
be but a suggestion. A question here and there, a drawing out of the
memory and imagination, will fill the pupil with a real interest in
what he is reading; and the eager child nature will exult in the knowl-
edge he has acquired, .and pressing forward to what lies beyond will
throw life and meaning into the simplest sentences.
In connection with this book I have prepared a complete set of
Practice Sentences. These consist of fifty envelopes, each containing
twenty sentences, introducing and giving practice on the new words in

-3 iv E*-

each lesson. After the new words have been developed and taught
from the blackboard, these sentences are distributed to the children,
and are read in turn; as fast as one is read a new one being given out.
Each child has his attention fixed upon his own individual sentence,
and his mind is more concentrated than in the blackboard lessons. No
time is lost in waiting, as the preparation can be made while the others
are reading, and the lesson i4 the book is kept fresh for the final read-
ing. I have made and used a similar set, during the past three years,
and consider them almost indispensable.
Read! read! read! is the cry of the times, and this set will double
the reading-matter without increasing the vocabulary. Hoping this
book may be of service to the teachers as well as to the children,
whose interests are always near my heart, I remain,

Yours very cordially,
