Excerpt from Johnson's First Reader

The ability to read well is one of the greatest accomplishments. To read well, it is necessary that the pupil should understand thoroughly the meaning of the author; he should make himself master of the thought expressed upon the printed page.

The Fifth Reader has been prepared with the idea that the pupil has already mastered elementary reading and is prepared to enter upon the higher forms of written language. With this idea in view, selections have been made from the best authors in history, biography, fiction, travels, etc. In numerous instances, the selections have been adapted or abridged, without, however, impairing their literary value. Explanatory notes have been prepared on several selections. It is suggested that supplementary explanation from the teacher would prove interesting to the pupils. Especially is this the case in selections taken from some of our standard works of fiction.
