English for the Thoughtful Child, Volume One
by Mary Hyde & Cyndy Shearer

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. This is 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.
