N is for Numbers!

This is the inside cover of a vintage children's arithmetic book!
It was published in 1948 by Scott, Foresman, and Company.

  2. Oh dear, that book was published not too many years before I was born, guess I qualify as "vintage".

  3. I always love your vintage books. I think the illustrations are so much more interesting than those I see in the kids books now. Of course I grew up in that era and that may explain attraction to them. Thanks for sharing.

  4. HI CORALIE,
    LOVE THOSE VINTAGE BOOKS, BRINGS BACK A LOT OF GOOD MEMORIES. SOMETIMES I WISH THEY WOULD BRING BACK THE OLD WAYS WHEN IT COMES TO TEACHING OUR CHILDREN. THEY EXPECT SO MUCH FROM THE LITTLE ONES, THEY FORGET THEY ARE CHILDREN.
