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.
