February 12, 2010Learn Your Mid-Century Lesson – Get Ready For School By Eating Prunes
Welcome to this week’s lesson! This cute lesson comes from Science, Health, Safety a grammer school textbook that was published in 1957, and meant to teach first graders through common sense. I found it at our local Goodwill, and fell in love with the illustrations.
I thought this would be a good lesson for those of you who have trouble getting out of bed on time for work, and keep forgetting to do things like washing or eating your prunes.
See, aren’t the illustrations the cutest?
Poor kid, he’s got pink polka-dotted curtains! Don’t worry little Bobby, I’ll take those. And you can wrap up your clock in them. And that lamp. Hand it over.
Those are some socks, let me tell ya.
Ta-da! Wait…I think he forgot to put his eyes in…
Oh my god, the whole family forgot their eyes! And I don’t even think that girl is conscious!
Or maybe she is worshipping the box of Rice cereal.
Just like Richard Scarry books!
Yeah, hi – Book? I’ll take some bacon, jelly, and some of those rolls. And throw in a cocoa. And you better hurry up, cause I’m late for school.
Wait…what do you mean this isn’t a menu?
Awww…look. They are all full of prunes and playing in front of the most adorable Mid-Century school. Hooray for happy endings!
Now if only that kid could get his hands on some eyes….
