Our spelling books. History and present

As part of its own book stocks, Comenius Pedagogical Library has prepared an exhibition devoted to spelling books published on the Czech territory since mid-16th century. In a chronological view it shows the development of spelling books, from faith-teaching books to a specialized “joyful children’s book which can talk with the child as a friend”. The part displaying current spellers was put together by the Fraus publishing house, and it shows the process of how a new speller comes into being. Mentioned are also stumbling blocks that text authors and illustrators can face.
