Gallaudet Children's Classic Reprints

THOMAS HOPKINS GALLAUDET
Thomas H. Gallaudet (1787-1851) was the Apostle to the Deaf in the United States. He devoted his life to teach the underprivileged the truths of God's Word. He wrote dozens and dozens of books using simple, straightforward language for children, young people and adults.

Solid Ground Christian Books is delighted to announce our intention to begin publishing a significant number of his outstanding books for children. We are convinced that these works can have a profound effect upon the coming generation.

Heman Humphrey said of him, "Enroll the name of Gallaudet among the most gifted and attractive writers in the department which he occupied of teaching the truth to children."

Henry Barnard, the distinguished promoter of public education, said the following about the book "The Child's Book on the Soul," 'This book exhibits Mr. Gallaudet's remarkable tact in bringing the most abstract subject within the grasp of the feeblest and youngest mind.'

THE CHILD'S BOOK ON THE SOUL
Thomas H. Gallaudet

Thomas H. Gallaudet (1787-1851) was the Apostle to the Deaf in the United States. He devoted his life to teach the underprivileged the truths of God's Word. He wrote dozens and dozens of books using simple, straightforward language for children, young people and adults.

This is considered the most remarkable book written by this extraordinary man. The Publisher read this to his four year old grandson and he was captivated by it and learned much about his immortal soul.

Henry Barnard, the distinguished promoter of public education, said the following about the book "The Child's Book on the Soul," 'This book exhibits Mr. Gallaudet's remarkable tact in bringing the most abstract subject within the grasp of the feeblest and youngest mind.'

"These volumes exerted in their day an influence it would be difficult to estimate. Hundreds of thousands of copies were circulated - they were translated into many languages, besides being reprinted and largely sold in England. They were read as English reading books in the schools of the Foreign Missionary Societies, and through these channels made themselves felt in unexpected places, even to the palace of the King of Siam." - The Life of Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet, pp. 230-231.

THE CHILD'S BOOK ON THE FALL
Thomas H. Gallaudet

Thomas H. Gallaudet (1787-1851) was the Apostle to the Deaf in the United States. He devoted his life to teach the underprivileged the truths of God's Word. He wrote dozens and dozens of books using simple, straightforward language for children, young people and adults.

"No other part of the Bible can be properly understood if Genesis 1-3 is misunderstood. The fall of our first parents into sin was both tragic and cataclysmic. The need and nature of the salvation that God provided in Jesus Christ cannot be appreciated where the events in the garden of Eden are underestimated. Children, as well as adults, need to learn this. Thomas Galluadet's book explains humanity's fall into sin in simple, clear language. It is designed for children but will help anyone think more carefully about what really happened when Adam and Eve turned away from God and plunged the human race into sin. I highly recommend it." -Tom Ascol

THE FALL OF MAN is a plain explanation of the origin of sin in the universe. Gallaudet leads children by the hand into the garden of Eden to help them see how our first parents fell into rebellion against their great and gracious Creator. The book concludes with a passionate appeal to the reader to "Go to Christ" who alone can save.

This book can be read to and by children 6-12 years old.

The Child's Book on Repentance
Thomas H. Gallaudet

Thomas H. Gallaudet (1787-1851) was the Apostle to the Deaf in the United States. He devoted his life to teach the underprivileged the truths of God's Word. He wrote dozens and dozens of books using simple, straightforward language for children, young people and adults.

Along with the book "The Child's Book on the Soul" of all the books written by T.H. Gallaudet none had a more profound impact than this one.

According to Gallaudet's biographer, "This book exerted an influence in its day that would be hard to estimate. Thousands of copies were circulated. It was translated into many languages, besides being reprinted and largely sold in England. It was read as an English reading book in the schools of the Foreign Missionary Societies, and through these channels made its way into unexpected places, even reaching the eyes and heart of the King of Siam."

SCRIPTURE BIOGRAPHY FOR THE YOUNG
With Critical Illustrations and Practical Remarks
Volumes One - Five
Thomas H. Gallaudet

Thomas H. Gallaudet (1787-1851) was the Apostle to the Deaf in the United States. He devoted his life to teach the underprivileged the truths of God's Word. He wrote dozens and dozens of books using simple, straightforward language for children, young people and adults.

These volumes are intended to take children and young people by the hand to lead them through the fascinating stories of the leading characters in the Old Testamernt Scriptures. Every chapter concludes with pointed and practical application to the hearts of the readers. The author is convinced that "the facts of the Bible should form a considerable part of a child's religious reading, instead of that mass of fictitious narrative which, at present, so greatly abounds."

These are perfect for Family Devotions and would be appropriate to use with children from 5 years old to the late teens. We have read nothing like these volumes.

THE YOUTH'S BOOK ON NATURAL THEOLOGY
Thomas H. Gallaudet

Thomas H. Gallaudet (1787-1851) was the Apostle to the Deaf in the United States. He devoted his life to teach the underprivileged the truths of God's Word. He wrote dozens and dozens of books using simple, straightforward language for children, young people and adults.

"Natural Theology is not learned from the Bible. It is all that can be known about God, merely by examining the beings and things which he has made, without the aid of revealed Theology."

This book is written as a sequel to the Child's Book on the Soul and uses the same form of dialogues between Mrs. Stanhope and her son Robert, who is a few years older in this book than in the former.

According to Gallaudet's biographer, "This book exerted an influence in its day that would be hard to estimate. Thousands of copies were circulated. It was translated into many languages, besides being reprinted and largely sold in England. It was read as an English reading book in the schools of the Foreign Missionary Societies, and through these channels made its way into unexpected places, even reaching the eyes and heart of the King of Siam."

THE PRACTICAL SPELLING-BOOK WITH READING LESSONS
Thomas H. Gallaudet and Horace Hooker

Two of the leading Christian educators of the first half of the 19th century joined their efforts to produce a remarkable tool for teaching both spelling and reading. Gallaudet is known best as "the Father of American Education for the Deaf," and his name is still a familiar one because of Gallaudet Univesity in Washington DC. Best known in our day for his books, "A Child's Book on the Fall," "The Child's Book on Repentance" and the soon-to-be-reprinted "Child's Book on the Soul," Gallaudet had a unique ability to speak and teach at the lowest level. His dear friend Horace Hooker wrote the book "The Child's Book on the Sabbath" as part of that outstanding series begun by Gallaudet.

This is a very rare volume that deserves a place in every homeschool library, and in every Christian and public school. May this reprint be useful even in teaching English as a second language.

SCRIPTURE BIOGRAPHY FOR THE YOUNG
The History of Josiah, The Young King of Judah
Thomas H. Gallaudet

THIS IS A BONUS VOLUME TO THE SCRIPTURE BIOGRAPHY FOR THE YOUNG SERIES

THE AUTHOR'S PREFACE

"The author adds one more volume, for children and youth, to the list of Scripture biographies. He rejoices that others too have been engaged in similar labors. As a father, he longs for the time when the histories which God himself directed to be written for our instruction and that of our offspring, may be prepared for their perusal, interwoven with such elucidations and instructions, and made the basis of such exhortations and admonitions, as will attract their attention, with an increasing interest, to the divinely inspired record, and lead them to regard the facts of the Bible as the most important facts to be known and pondered in the whole circle of their reading.

He will only add, that his own attention has been arrested by the character of Josiah, as one that cornbines traits of peculiar excellence, which deserve to be strikingly illustrated and set before our children and youth, as models of imitation and incentives to duty.

How far he has succeeded in attempting to do this, the public will decide. If the book does good, especially to the souls of children and youth, his highest wishes will be answered."
