The Nursery Book is an improved introduction to reading, siailling,

and understanding, for the use of infant scholars. It contains descriptions of nearly a hundred difl'erent familiar objects, and their uses and construction; as lessons in reading and spel- ling, illustrated with very distinct and neatly-executed lithographs of each. We should object to the use of words of three or more syllables, did not the compilers, Messrs. Blum and Rtnnway, masters of infant schools, assure us, that by the adoption of their plan of teaching, a word of four syllables is as easily learnt as four of one each.
