Reviews of : McGuffey’s First Eclectic Reader by William Holmes McGuffey PDF Book
Inside this Book -We skipped a couple passages that were just a bit too outdated, but, otherwise Kairi gradually read through this with assistance. I’m going to let her do some easier Seuss books before starting the next McGuffey’s book. Overall, this was a bit dated, as one would expect from it being a very old book. There were a couple passages so outdated we skipped and some I just changed a couple words on. Mostly though, it was a very good tool for teaching reading. Passages build on each other, gradually adding additionally vocabulary words. There are sections of cursive at the end of the lessons. I’m sure we will have a couple skipped passages in all the McGuffey readers. Even so, it’s such a good tool available as a free ebook that it is still worth doing.
Inside this book –McGuffey’s First Eclectic Reader PDF Book by William Holmes McGuffey – “Now they will crown some one Queen of the May. Who shall it be? It should be the best girl, and that is Kate” (57-58). Overt references to loving God toward the end. McGuffey was a Presbyterian minister and college professor/president. Harriet Beecher (Stowe) was offered the job of writing/editing these books, but she turned it down and recommended her friend William Holmes McGuffey. These readers were used in public schools from about the mid-1800s to the mid-1900s. A professor at Liberty University writes that these readers functioned as the New England Primer did in the previous century; this essay includes reasons that some critics have objected to the readers. Some private school students and homeschooling still use them. I bought a set of the revised edition (1879 reprint) at a Christian educators’ conference around 2007. The original 1836–37 edition is more explicitly religious, whereas the 1879 edition (which McGuffey did not write or edit) has more of a secularized civil religion flavor. Kate started reading this primer soon after she turned 5. Marilynne Robinson supports the McGuffey readers in her essay “McGuffey and the Abolitionists” in The Death of Adam. Here is a good reason not to abandon the McGuffey Readers.
