PREFACE.

THE FIRST NATIONAL READING-BOOK is the sequel to the NATIONAL PRIMER. The latter consists of exercises on the more common monosyllables. In the FIRST Book, more difficult monosyllables and words of two syllables are freely introduced. The object aimed at has not been so much to impart information, as to provide interesting lessons for practice in reading The more difficult words in each lesson are placed in columns at the top. Special spelling lessons and specimens of Script are given at the end of the book.
