Animals, Plants, and Machines
(D. C. Heath, 1944)
This is a schoolbook as I remember schoolbooks! Nicely colored pictures with outlines not too sharp highlight simple texts about progress and trains and tractors. One fable, The Rooster and the Pearl, comes up--somewhat ...
Have You Read
(Benj. H. Sanborn & Co., 1946)
