It's time for another classic illustration from my favorite primer, The Elson Reader! I just love all of the many illustrations in this book and wish I'd had it when I was a child. Being an animal lover, this would have been just perfect as there are dozens of beautiful children and animal pictures.
However, this book was a 1930 revision of the 1920 & 1927 version which was copyrighted in 1912 & 1913. My first reading books in school were the Dick and Jane series. I loved Spot the dog and Puff the cat but their interactions in the stories were limited.
Which first readers did you have when growing up?
