PREFAOE.

The New Code requires as an exercise of reading in the First Standard, “one of the narratives next in order after monosyllables in an elementary reading book used in the school.” Accordingly, in the

compilation of the present Reader, the editor has confined himself

almost exclusively to words of one and two syllables. The lessons in the

present work are, as the Code says, “narratives," and not lessons on

subjects which may improve the minds of the young but are little

calculated to excite their attention.

The best reading book is the book

which will teach children the difficult subject of reading in the best and

quickest way. This is the view of the matter which the Education

Department adopts in its "Instructions to Inspectors,” and it is upon this principle that the present series of reading books is compiled.
