Here’s more about the book: “Meiklejohn advocates methods for teaching literacy that are still in use, encouraging the nascent reader to interact with words on the page, point to them, count them, and incorporate them into phrases and rhyming verse. The new edition reproduces the original text in facsimile alongside Walter Crane’s gorgeous Arts and Crafts-style illustrations.”
The 64-page book sells for $14.95. What books helped teach you how to read? This GalleyCat contributor had a particular fondness for Dr. Seuss‘ rhyme tomes and Stan & Jan Berenstain‘s picture book series.
