Hunter reading “In the City and on the Farm: A California State Textbook”. Publishing date? 1940.
Lately, “Dick and Jane” style readers are a favorite, including the first and second grade readers in the Pathway series (Amish/Menonite school books). Now that we found this 1940′s state textbook at a thrift store for fifty cents last weekend, he has been blazing through it.
Either way, the 1940′s “city” life is certainly no NYC. With tales “apartment houses”, “fun at…” the park, the zoo, the circus, the movies, the grocery store, and the library, the clothing, setting, and lifestyle is probably more of a history lesson than a familiarity.
Either way, he enjoys the stories and, as always, whatever keeps him reading!
