At the beginning of the summer, one Saturday afternoon, my husband and I stopped at a church garage sale and looked around. I am always amazed at what you will find at church sales. I always find amazing things!
In celebrating back to school week, I wanted to show you a great find that was full of memories of school days past. I was so excited to find a stack of vintage school readers! I purchased several, these are just a few of the ones that made it home with me that day!
These two books are the very same, just have different covers. I seem to remember these from my school days, however, I am not sure if I actually had the books or my brother possibly had them. I do remember the covers of these and still think they are adorable. These are copyrighted 1964.
These have very cute graphics that accompany the stories. I love the colors on this page.
Along with cute stories, this book also has plays as well. I love these books. Brings back a lot of memories!
This one is adorable as well. I love the animals and the theme throughout this book with its stories. This one is copyrighted 1957 and is one of 5 books in "The Wonder - wonder series" for the classroom.
Just look at the adorable graphics. Each story is accompanied with adorable pictures to match the story. All with cute little animals.
Now this one, is really a favorite of mine. This is the only paperback I purchased. It is rather old but still in wonderful condition. This looks to be an early reader, maybe first grade and it does look familiar, so I think I might have had this book when I was a little girl. This book is copyrighted 1957.
As with all of the books I purchased that day, they all have the school stamps on the first page, showing they were textbooks of the schools for the state.
This one is very interesting, as it shows little pictures next to the words as you read along showing you who is talking. I think that is a really unusual feature.
And of course, love the dated graphics. Everything back then was so much simpler than today.
Next week, I'll show you some of the others I was lucky enough to find. They are great literary treasures and so glad to have them. Maybe one day I will have grandchildren and we can sit and read these together......gotta dream!
Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!!!
