The large book below "Big Story Book" dates to 1900 and the illustrations are just wonderful although in black and white.
When I was a child I did not know there were other movies other than westerns. That was all we were ever taken to see. My Dad loved them!!!
Girls liked Heidi, Rebecca and of course Little Women.
Also girls loved Nancy Drew and Cherry Ames RN and Trixie Belden stories.
I did not show so many of the books we have such as Primers and that sort but only those
that I felt represented a sampling of what kids in the US have enjoyed over the years.
