McGuffey's Fourth Reader

by William H. McGuffey


Quick Overview

McGuffey also believed in phonics for beginning reading. Methods and timing should be adapted to the individuality of each child. Parents should not send their dearest treasure off to school too early in life, but should proceed at the child's own pace. This preserves the vigor of his mental action.


Develops advanced vocabulary and thinking skills. Introduces some of the greatest English authors - Webster, Jefferson, Shakespeare, Johnson, Schiller and others. Students will read of Napoleon and Wilberforce, of Jesus and the Apostle Paul. They will ponder death, good and evil, the Bible, eternity, duty, and God. Elocution (the art of speaking expressively) helps included. May be used at high school level, although some schools use it with good readers in junior high. Size1.3" H x 8.6" L x 5.7" W, 422 pages
