    PREFACE.This volume takes its appropriate place, as A Child's

    First Book in French, by the side of my Elementary FrenchGrammar, and my Analytical and Practical French Gram-mar. The three works are not necessarily connected; eachtakes up the subject at its first principles, but in each a dif-ferent mode of instruction is adopted, suited to the differentages of the scholars for whom the books are written.The present work is intended for children who can read,

    but who have not yet any knowledge of the grammar oftheir own language. For this class of scholars object-teach-ing seems the most suitable ; that is, connecting the instruc-tion with an object presented to the eye. This mode hasbeen generally followed in the lessons in this book. Pictureshave been prepared for the purpose, and the lessons, in PartFirst, directly refer to the objects in the pictures. Eachlesson is headed by a name, which, in connection with theillustration, helps to impress the subject-matter of the les-son upon the mind, enables the student to recall it morereadily, and creates a more lively interest.

    In Part; Second, the lessons refer to the illustrations inPart First, recall the name of each picture, enlarge uponthe subject, and, by associating new ideas with it, keep alivethe interest.The English is given in all the reading lessons, word for

    word, underneath the French, so that the students mayknow the meaning of each word which they pronounce,without referring to the vocabularies. This plan possesses.

    4 PREFACE.besides, the advantage of showing the difference in the con-struction of the two languages. A correct English versionof the French exercises follows in Part Third.

    Finally, Part Fourth contains a glance at the parts ofspeech, with paradigms of the auxiliary verbs and of thefour regular conjugations, as an introduction to the studyof grammar.The lessons are progressive. Beginning with the simple

    elements, they gradually advance, and develop, in a practicalcourse, the first principles, which are the groundwork ofgrammar.

    It may perhaps be urged as an objection that the develop-ment is too rapid, and that the lessons towards the end ofPart Second are too complicated. This ground of objectionis more apparent than real. The book contains matter fora two years' course of instruction, which may even be ex-tended beyond that period. Students who enter upon thecourse at nine or ten years of age, will not have completedit before they are twelve or thirteen. The average intellectof that age can understand all the English in the exercises,and hence can acquire a practical knowledge of the same inFrench.The favor with which my former works of this series havebeen received by eminent teachers in New York and othercities, and by an appreciative public in general, leads me tobelieve that this volume will meet with a kind reception,and will readily secure for itself a careful inspection. Mythanks are due in advance to all who, after a thoroughexamination of it, will express a candid criticism.

    TO TEAOHEES.This work contains Four Parts and an Introduction.The Introduction treats of the letters and their sounds, and gives a

    few exercises in pronouncing. The explanations on the sounds ofthe letters are not written for the children.The scholars should learn the names of the letters, either the new

    names or the old. The exercises in pronouncing may at first be omit-ted. It is not deemed expedient to teach pronunciation to childrenby means of abstract sounds. The better way is to teach them topronounce short words of simple import, the names of objects withwhich they are acquainted. The first lessons in Part First havebeen framed with this view; take, for instance, the following sen-tenc
