Long esteemed as one of the most valued works from the 19th century on the art of mothering and the glory of the work of the mother at home, “The Mother at Home” is valuable reading for any girl or young women desiring instruction on proper discipline of her own children. Rarely in print and worth obtaining at any price, “The Mother at Home” is a superb guide for Christian mothers who want biblical counsel on Christian child rearing. The object of this valuable book is practical utility, as opposed to literary effect. Written in 1833 for mothers in the common walks of life, it tunes into the realities and seriousness of child rearing. John Abbott’s eloquent and powerful illustrations provoke a parent to focus on the child's soul; not just their mind (i.e. education) or body (i.e. health). Abbott clearly understood that the child will one day grow up; and how he or she is raised now will affect the end result (Proverbs 22:6). Couples who read this book together will achieve more unity in parenting, plus a better understanding of what needs to be done for children. One of the most helpful, to the point, books ever written outside of the Bible, “The Mother at Home” is recommended to all parents with children.

John Stevens Cabot Abbott (September 19, 1805 – June 17, 1877), an American historian, pastor, and pedagogical writer, was born in Brunswick, Maine to Jacob and Betsey Abbott. He was a brother of Jacob Abbott, and was associated with him in the management of Abbott's Institute, New York City, and in the preparation of his series of brief historical biographies. Dr. Abbott graduated at Bowdoin College in 1825, prepared for the ministry at Andover Theological Seminary, and between 1830 and 1844, when he retired from the ministry in the Congregational Church, preached successively at Worcester, Roxbury and Nantucket, all in Massachusetts. Owing to the success of a little work, The Mother at Home, he devoted himself, from 1844 onwards, to literature. He was a voluminous writer of books on Christian ethics, and of popular histories, which were credited with cultivating a popular interest in history. He is best known as the author of the widely popular History of Napoleon Bonaparte (1855), in which the various elements and episodes in Napoleon's career are described. Abbott takes a very favourable view towards his subject throughout. Also among his principal works are: History of the Civil War in America (1863-1866), and The History of Frederick II, Called Frederick the Great (New York, 1871). In general, except that he did not write juvenile fiction, his work in subject and style closely resembles that of his brother, Jacob Abbott.
