Ladybird Initial Teaching Alphabet ITA book
Last week we went to my wifes parents, and helped clear out the loft.
Amongst all the great old photos were a number of books from her childhood, of which this was one. Ive listed a couple of Ladybird books in the "eezy-reeding" scheme before. I still cant believe anyone learnt to read with this scheme, but there you go!
This little gem, first printed in 1964, is illustrated by the prolific Harry Woolley. Theres a short article about Woolley over at Bear Alley.
