In the first decade of the twentieth century the number of its members exceeds 50,000 people. In the large industrial centers of the US and Canada, durable Bulgarian settlements occurred. With the emergence of children in immigrant families, the need aroused of Bulgarian immigrant school. The first Bulgarians educators overseas solved the problem of textbooks in the most correct way.
