Rapidity in learning to read depends upon the quickness with which the child's attention shall be drawn to the substance by which the process is made more or less an unconscious one. The method of this book's production has been as follows: The story was first related to pupils from seven to nine years of age, in the best form possible. Some days later, reproductions, both oral and written, were called for. These reproductions (many hundred in number) formed the material for most careful study as to essential elements of plot, salient points of interest, and especially the words and forms of expressions used by children. By this means the story has been reconstructed. Portions over which the children love to linger are brought out to the fullest extent. Their words and forms of language, within the limits of grammatical usage, are followed scrupulously. Less than seven hundred and fifty words, all of the commonest use among children, are used in the entire series.
