Alphabet des Clowns Phrases par Syllabes, Méthode de lecture graduée [fourth book]; Volume indéchirable sur toile. This linen book contains a children’s alphabet story written as a one-syllable-word book or graded reader about circus life and how each person is part of the circus and how they came to the circus. It explains who they are and what act they put on during the show. Halfway through the book there is a practice section with examples on how to do cursive writing for capital letters, numbers, and familiarize with the Roman numbers. There is also a “Petite phrases à lire par syllables,” little sentences to be read by syllables. That bottom half of the page is dedicated for the reader to read and does not contain the broken syllables. The book concludes with four short poems about air, earth, water, and fire.
