My favorite find at a Thrift store are old children’s books or readers! I found these two books at Goodwill for $1.50 each! SWOON!!!
I love the books I grew up with in the ‘50s and ‘60s but this Elson reader was a GREAT find! Printed in 1920 (a little before my time! lol) for the Sixth Grade. I think they could use it for a high school textbook now! It is quite advanced for what we consider the 6th grade level of reading now!
And how about this sweet Health book!
Little girls loved to draw pretty ladies even back then! I don’t think that takes away from the book at all….
it makes my imagination go to the little girl that used this book and drew pictures during class!
There are several poems and stories on the founding of America which fits in nicely with the book I’m reading! It was printed in 1920 as well.
Thanks to my friend ‘Freckled Hen’ for a wonderful book recommendation! Oliver Wiswell by Kenneth Roberts has over 800 pages but I can not put it down! (this is a library book)
I tucked my ‘new’ books into a new bookcase!
But I’ll show you more of that in another post!
