If you are looking for the real McGuffey readers, stay away from this.

The formatting makes it difficult to use as areading text. There are random "words" made of symbols and random letters. This will make it very confusing for a person to learn to read because the teacher has to point out what is wrong on every page. The McGuffey Reader books are excellent tools for teaching reading and I recommend them, just not this version.
