1952 DICK and JANE Series Salesman Sample Booklet

Sold! RARE - Vintage 1952 DICK and JANE Series - SALESMAN SAMPLE BOOKLET (Litho), "Introducing... Tom and Susan", A Social Development Primer. This booklet provides samples from the SOCIAL STUDIES PROGRAM of the vintage original DICK AND JANE SERIES, Curriculum Foundation Series, social studies readers. The social studies readers work in conjunction with the original Dick and Jane Basic Readers", as far as language development, word usage, etc.

Please do NOT confuse the "Tom and Susan" from the Dick and Jane series with the other "Tom and Susan and Betty" characters from the Ginn Basic Readers. They are NOT the same characters, nor are they the same series. They are NOT affiliated in any way.

Tom and Susan (brother and sister) that are featured in the Dick and Jane readers are "FRIENDS" of Dick and Jane. They live in the same neighborhood and all play together in various stories in several readers from this series. However, in most of the Social Studies Readers, Science Readers, Health Readers, etc... usually just Dick and Jane's friends appear in those books. Sometimes Dick and Jane will appear too, but not often. Typically Dick and Jane are featured in the Basic Readers, rather than the "subject specific" readers. However, ALL of the books from the Curriculum Foundation (Dick and Jane) Series are indeed part of the vintage original Dick and Jane Series, and considered collectible! No collection is complete without the entire series.

This is a rare find for the collector who is looking for unique finds. Measures approximately 5-3/4" x 8". - Item #001081
