MONROE'S PRIMARY READING CHARTS.
This Series prepared by Prof. LEWIS B. MONROE, Dean of Boston University School of Oratory, contains many original and valuable features.
These Books are profusely Illustrated by the best artists, and in mechanical execution are superior to any school books now published. The Series is so arranged that the First, Second, Third and Fifth Readers form an Abridged Series, peculiarly adapted to the wants of ungraded schools in the smaller towns.
This Series has been prepared by a Practical Teacher of Reading,-one who has devoted many years to the subject, and carefully studied its workings in the School Room. The methods presented have been practically tested for years in the schools of Boston and elsewhere; and the books contain what experience has shown to be the most productive of good results.

The selections must be vivacious, interesting in subject, and happy in style, and must possess many other merits to give them claims to be used in the School Reader. It is believed that the compiler of these books has been strikingly successful in choosing just what is needed.
