The New England Primer was the first textbook ever printed in America and was used to teach reading and Bible lessons in our schools until the twentieth century. In fact, many of the Founding Fathers and their children learned to read from The New England Primer. This pocket-size edition is an historical reprint of the 1777 version used in many schools during the Founding Era. A great resource for homeschoolers or for use in any classroom. This book is a faithful reproduction of the 1777 New England Primer with a very significant exception. The letter “s” in the old English alphabet (represented sometimes by an “s” and other times by what appears to be an “f”) has been standardized to the single modern “s.” This change makes the valuable lessons contained in this book easy to comprehend for children and adults alike.
