Item Description...
In the preparation of this book it has been the author's aim to avoid complexity of plan, as far as possible. Hence it will be observed that he has simplified the ordinary vowel sounds. The differences between the sound o in nor and not; of a in fall and wad, as well as between u in rule and tube, seems too nice to be appreciated by an unpracticed ear. These distinctions being unnecessary, and tending only to embarrass the learner, have not been retained. In the orthography of such words as music, public, formerly terminating with ck; and in favor, honor, formerly spelled our, the k and u are omitted, agreeably to the principles of Dr. Webster, whose philological labors entitle him to the gratitude of every American. The reading lessons, most of which are new, have been progressively arranged; and it is hoped they will be found both interesting and instructive.

Publishers Description
Republication of the 1830's McGuffey Readers. Called 'progressive' because it begins with basic phonics and progresses to advanced vocabulary worthy of a graduate student. As such, it is the only spelling book you will ever need.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not the greatest resource.  Mar 11, 2010
I absolutely love the McGuffey readers. I thought I'd like the McGuffey speller as well, but I do not! Don't get me wrong, it may work for some, it just isn't what I was expecting. I home school my two boys (ages 5 and 6). The first few sections work for the younger kids, but after that, it becomes quite difficult. If you are looking for a good progressive spelling curriculum, I highly recommend Phonics Pathways in conjunction with a Spelling Workout workbook. That is what we are using now and we love it. I'll keep my McGuffey Progressive Spelling Book to use as a reference in the future, but I certainly don't like it as a main resource for our spelling curriculum.
This is fairly decent  Mar 1, 2010
This is a good book that list many words every child should be able to spell. With the USA having the highest illiteracy rate in the world and witnessing many high school students that can not spell nose, knows, and no correctly, I think everyone needs one of these books.
