John Heywood's Manchester Readers. A New

Series of Books of rudimentary instruction for Elementary Schools of all grades and classes, specially prepared to suit the requirements of the NEW CODE, and affording the most efficient instruction in Reading, for the various standards of examination.

The READING AND SPELLING LESSONS will be found of inestimable value, being based upon a perfect system of gradation, and differing in style from any others published.

In the Spelling Lessons, the etymological division of words has been always preserved, except where it would interfere with the usual pronunciation of vowel sounds, in which case the etymological division has been subordinated to the phonetic. Full and clear lists of the most common Prefixes, Suffixes, and Roots are appended to the Fifth Book.

In Five Books. Designed to supply the requirements of the Ed

Department for a Second Series of Reading Books.

These books are compiled on the principle recommended i “Instructions to Inspectors," that books for teaching reading shoi of a nature to interest children. The earlier books consist of a nu of simple tales specially adapted for the amusement and instructic the young.

Neither spelling, writing, nor arithmetic lessons introduced, as the object of the New Code Readers is simply to su] extra reading matter, and not to take the place of distinct manual: other subjects of education. In the higher standards the books varied in nature, and made up of lessons on subjects calculated excite the interest of the children, while conveying to them valuai information, The lessons are carefully graduated, so that each standa is perceptibly more difficult than the previous one. Pieces of poetry a interspersed throughout, and care has been taken to exclude from eac book any extracts which would be difficult of comprehension to the chil in the particular standard.

The compiler, impressed with the conviction that every series of reading books must finally stand or fall upon the simple issue whether they are found successful in teaching children to read, has striven to attain this object throughout; and it is hoped that by making these books interesting, instructive, and carefully graduated, the work of the teachers in securing fluency in reading may be greatly facilitated.
