I love to find vintage books - especially school books.
This is one of the finds from my most recent trip: a spelling book from 1963.
My favorite part is the illustrations. This one was more of a proper text book with actual work in it, so there are fewer illustrations. But what there is is good stuff.
This is from the 1951 classic "I Wonder Why." Such stimulating content: "Picture of Weather. See this picture of weather." But I'm sure the charming illustrations captured the hearts and imaginations of many young students.
Look. This one explains where babies come from!
And that's about as much detail as you get. :)
This one is my favorite. It must have been for really young students because it is full mostly of illustrations with very little text. And the illustrations are fabulous.
The book has already been used as a cutter so I don't feel any obligation to keep it pristine. I'd like to cut it up some more but I don't actually know what to do with the illustrations. Any great ideas? I'd love suggestions. (I'm so not creative in these areas.) I want to live in that house with the red roof.
My little guys love it too. Sweet!
(Which is good, because as much as I'd like to, I can't actually fit in it myself.)
