This is so trivial, it's embarrassing. But for some reason, every once-in-a-while, I get the idea of wanting to get a look my old readers from elementary school. I've tried looking them up, and have found very few that I remember. I can find some old Ginn readers with characters that I remember, mainly Tom, Betty, and Susan from those early grades; but it's not those I really want to look at, although for the purpose of how my reading/learning developed, I guess they may be pertinent. Some other titles I remember can be found-- and the books aren't online, of course, but you can know some copies are still around somewhere-- such as Finding New Neighbors and Under the Apple Tree. But those I don't remember anything about other than the titles. One of which I would like to actually find a copy available would be Better Than Gold, as it was my introduction to the story of the Wright Brothers, and something about developing the vaccine for smallpox (Jenner?), and a boy who fishes through a knothole and snags one too big to pull through the hole. And another one I would like to find is High Roads, with stories about forest fires, and one about a man offered a free turkey for Thanksgiving but not told he has to shoot the turkey himself. A lot of these books and stories, of course, are very non-PC, and that may figure into why some can't be found. Another one that I can find was about a fawn that got lost from his mother, and the book is all about him growing up while trying to find her and meeting all his new friends [animals] in forest situations-- seemed to have been a Bambi ripoff. But that kind of book is PC, so that may explain why it can be found at several sites. Anyway, is it weird, or even unspiritual, to think about wanting to retrace our learning development by means of what we had to read in our early grades in school? Or just plain fluff? Either way, I said up front that this is so trivial it's embarrassing .
