Volume 1 in The Unit-Activity Reading Series

Softcover or hardcover, 154 pages, color throughout

    This charming book was released in 1935 as the primer (or beginning reader) of the “Unit-Activity Reading Series.” Written and edited primarily by Nila Banton Smith, a renown educator in her time, “At Home and Away” features selections from a variety of period authors.

    The book contains a series of short stories, each grouped by a master subject: Train Stories, Home Stories, Breakfast in the City, How Children Help in the City, Pets in the City, Toys in the City, Play in the City, Boat Stories, Breakfast in the Country, How Children Help in the Country, and Pets and Play in the Country.

    As a primer, the language level is for new readers, and the wonderful illustrations by Margaret C. and Florence J. Hoopes are so period perfect, you’ll marvel just at them.

    This is the perfect book for anyone with a beginning reader who seeks to introduce their child to classic childhood themes without the baggage of modern scholastic prose.

    It is for that reason that we have reproduced this series, to ensure its ongoing availability to future generations of new readers.
