The Pennsylvania Reader is patterned after early primers.  Colorful illustrations accompany lively prose, poetry, games, and short stories; working together to entertain and educate. This book includes the history behind the state name, state symbols, distinguished citizens, and famous events. Original fiction, such as a Reader Theater drama, provide ample opportunity for student/classroom interaction.
