Abstrakti

The chapter focuses on the home education of reading and writing in Finnish language in immigrant families and the role of ABC books and primary readers in this process. The study is based on archival research and fieldwork in the Finnish communities of Rockport and Lanesville on Cape Ann in Massachusetts. Primary sources are Finnish ABC books and primary readers published in the U.S. for Finnish children between 1877 and 1929. These books were used in homes or at Sunday and summer schools organized by both religious and socialist organizations. Some private family collections of ABC books are used as comparative material. The analysis focuses on images of home, reading, and writing. ABC books were tools of cultural exchange between Finland and the Finnish communities in North America. Different political and religious groups valued Finnish language and culture. Another shared value was respect for children’s physical integrity.
