While working on the upcoming series for July the 4, celebrating our Independence and focusing on high achievement for our children, I came across the New England Primer, used from 1690 to 1930. The founding fathers learned to read and were formed by it. In turn, they made certain it was reprinted for subsequent generations. Yet it is very different from what we find in public schools today. For my partners, I have made a shortened, slightly updated version. It includes the 10 Commandments and also the shortened poem version for children, the alphabet poem complete with Scripture verses, “The Offices of Humanity” meaning the duties every human has, and more. You will be edified and you will want a copy for every child in your family. Send $7.00 with your continental U.S. address or $7.00 plus postage for a CD.
