I had a long list of things I wanted to find in a first grammar/composition text: I wanted to apply what Charlotte Mason called narration, material concentrating on the writing process that would not burden the young child. I wanted a text that would draw the child into writing, and lay the foundation for good composition skills that could be applied in all learning situations. I wanted something simple and fun to work with. Originally published in 1903, this book uses wonderful pictures to stimulate the child s imagination and lead him or her into writing. There are memorization assignments, oral compositions, written compositions and practice exercises. Useful as a second grade English text, but it is also very useful as a first course for older, reluctant writers. No teacher s edition necessary; everything you need is in the student text [via]
