ARTIFICIAL MEMORY


FOR


INFANTS;


WHEREBY


They may Acquire


THE


KNOWLEDGE OF ANIMALS,


AND


Some of their Sounds,


BEFORE


They can go or speak.



Although this invention is calculated for the diversion of infants, yet it will afford great pleasure to the Parent and Nurse, to observe the progress, and surprising difference in the early sense of their children.

The method I propose, is that you first shew the child the following animals, one at a time, and pronounce its sound, as for example.

Ask which is the DOG? then point to it, then ask what the DOG says, then say,

BOW, WOW, WOW.

and so on to the rest, by which means, the child in a short time, will be able to do the same.
