Excerpt from The Sentential Reader That is the question, said Professor Cadmus. It is not the definition so much as the attainment. Need I say, that reading is not to be acquired by rules? It is useless to make them the basis of instruction in reading. Seeing is the knowing of childhood. The thing must take precedence of the word. I entirely agree with you, said Dr. Wisdom. Nor can it be taught by examples. As well might Miss S attempt to teach my daughter the art of music by playing over some of her phantasies, as a teacher attempt to teach children reading by presenting models of the art.
