This Primer is added to the Language Reader Series, in accordance with the original plan of the Series, to furnish material for simpler and better graded instruction than can be had through the First Reader alone. Its material is of the same general sort as the earlier readers of the Series. Type and illustrations have been made in accordance with the latest and most accepted theories of the laws of the eye and mind of the child.
Special acknowledgment is here made to Professor Edward L. Thorndike, of Teachers College, for very material help in the preparation and criticism of the book. No feature in it has been included without his advice and approval.
