PREFACE.

THIS book is designed as an introduction to the Third Primary Reader, and is intended for use, as its title indicates, in Primary Schools. It has been chiefly prepared by a gentleman long engaged in teaching, and of much practical experience in all that relates to education, but under my careful supervision.

It consists of EXERCISES IN ENUNCIATION, with such remarks to Teachers as were deemed useful, and of SELECTIONS FOR READING IN PROSE AND VERSE.

The Exercises in Enunciation are such as can easily be used by young children with the aid of the Teacher. They should receive daily attention. The organs of speech are dependent upon muscular action; and if we would have good reading and speaking, the voice should be early and constantly trained to the utterance of the correct sounds of the language.

Many of the Reading Lessons have been written expressly for the work. Some of them are illustrated by original designs by Billings, engraved by John Andrew. The beauty of the engravings cannot fail to interest the class of learners for which they have been prepared.
