The last few weeks, my daughter and I have been on a huge shopping quest to build a classroom library. My daughter is graduating in December with her masters in education and is already working on things that she will need in the classroom. So we have been buying books when we find them. It is sorta tough not knowing exactly what grade she will be teaching and kindergarten through sixth grade really is a broad area to cover. I for the most part have purchased books for the younger grades. It has been lots of fun.
Now, lucky for me, my daughter really has no interest in the vintage books.....Oh. But. I. Do!
I found this reader in a recent shopping spree. Copyright 1963. I actually found about 40 vintage books...all with the adorable stories and graphics I remember so well. Lucky for me....my daughter thinks these are too out of date! Ha!! Not for my taste!
Turns out The Big Show is a circus.....love the little pictures beside the sentences.
I love all the colorful pictures on each page......
This is so cute...looks like she found a kitten and wants to keep it!! Too bad it was not a wiener dog!!
It is hard for me to leave these on a shelf when I find them. I have really been amazed at how many of these books I have found lately, as it has been a long time since I ran across any vintage school books.
The new "in style" books of today ( that my daughter is wanting ) just do not have an appeal for me as these older ones do....and have you thumbed through the pages of new books today????....the pictures are just plain weird!! I am guessing that is what the kids like these days! Not this old sister!!!
Have a great Vintage Thingie Thursday!! I am sure I will share more of my great finds in a few weeks.
