McGuffey and His Readers
by John H. Westerhoff III, 1978, 1992 edition.
We at McGuffey's Readers World have seen this book recommended several times
in our research gathering together the information for our McGuffey's Readers World website. We suggest you consider its merits.
On the back cover we found: "I urge every Christian school educator to read McGuffey and His Readers by John Westerhoff. It will give you insight into the biblical foundations of America's early school curriculum. You'll be amazed at how Christ-centered McGuffey's Readers actually were. McGuffey did much to strengthen the spiritual vitality of early America through his Readers."
- Dr. Paul Kienel, Executive Director, Association of Christian Schools International.
This little book, at a very modest price, can act as an easy way for the parent/teacher to enter into the world of McGuffey and the other fine "old fashioned" curricula that is available. When one learns how valuable the McGuffey Readers can be in educating children one also is introduced to the idea that "older is better" in all the educational materials you consider.
We invite you to look at the sample information that follows.
