As specimens of good reading-books they cannot be excelled. The exercises are carefully arranged so as to suit the meanest capacity, and at the same time have a tendency to make useful impressions on the minds of young scholars.

The lessons are founded on stories or anecdotes, and are amply and clearly illustrated.-Educational Guide.
