From the back cover:

"Let's bring back McGuffey's Readers - it would expose young men and women to good literature, self-discripline, and traditional moral values."
Dr. Carl Bode
Professor of English
University of Maryland at College Park

"I urge every Christian school educator to read McGUFFEY AND HIS READERS by John Westerhoff.
"It will give you insight into the biblical foundations of America's early school curriculum. You'll be amazed at how Christ-centered McGuffey's Readers actually were!
"McGuffey did much to strengthen the spiritual vitality of early American through his Readers."
Dr. Paul Kienel, Executive Director
Association of Christian School International

"For years McGuffey's system and his books guided the minds of four-fifths of the school children of the nation in their taste for literature, in their morality, in their social development, and next to the Bible in their religion."
