McGuffey's Readers--Popular For More Than 170 Years!
It might be said that America grew up on McGuffey's readers. Long before Dick and Jane, the best known schoolbooks in the United States were the McGuffey Readers. In fact they have been the most successful educational textbooks in history, selling more than 120 million copies since 1836. It's easy to see why. The readers teach children to read and spell using exciting and exotic stories, poems and fables that appeal to their age. All books are hardcover.
