A Primary Reader: Old-time Stories, Fairy Tales and Myths Retold by Children by E. Louise Smythe (1858 - ?).


"This book originated in a series of little reading lessons prepared for the first grade pupils in the Santa Rosa public schools. The object of the lessons was three-fold: to provide reading matter for the little ones who had only a small vocabulary of sight-words; to acquaint them early with the heroes who have come down to us in song and story; and to create a desire for literature...Various stories were given to the pupils; discussions followed. After a time the story was produced orally by the children. Notes were made on expressions used and points of interest dwelt upon. Later the story was either written on the blackboard or mimeographed and put into the pupils' hands to read...Hoping these stories will interest other children as they have interested those who helped build them, I send them forth." ( E. Louise Smythe)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/7841
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

MC and DPL most welcome.

This will be a solo project for my daughter, LittlePeanut.

LittlePeanut is interested in reading some stories. Up to this point, she has focused on simple poetry. We are not planning on reading the preface, and are also planning to leave out the word lists to help the story flow.

OK, your MW is up and ready for you! I told the liberty to cut the file name down to just primaryreader_##. What the template maker gave us was a mile long! We will wait here a day so two to see if we can pick up a DPL.

I would love to DPL for LittlePeanut if it's OK that I don't get to this first chapter until Thursday. 3 of my solo DPLs will be finished Wednesday. :)

(normally I have incoming chapters proofed within a day)

LittlePeanut, you just MADE MY DAY!!! I sure lucked out with this proofing gig!

:D :D :D

I saw that this file was all of 5 minutes long, so I popped it in. AND WHAT A TREAT! Superb reading, nothing to edit.

Your pacing is wonderful, the words are all clear, and I really love the way you adjust your voice for different characters.

Chapter 1 is Checker passed and PL OK :thumbs:
