Shaping the Values of Youth: Sunday School Books in 19th Century America

Many things shape values in a society, and it is interesting to look at how different items, such as Sunday school books, help achieve this goal. This digital collection created by Michigan State University and Central Michigan University offers up a selection of the most well known representatives of this genre. First-time visitors should start out by reading the introductory essay by Stephen Rachman of the department of English at Michigan State University. After that, visitors can look over the books by title, author, or category. The categories are quite interesting, and they include "holidays", "immigrants", and "temperance". All told, there are well over 100 titles here, and visitors may wish to start their journey through these tomes by looking over "Are You Going to the Circus?" or "A Dialogue Between A Traveller and Yourself".
