This book was previously used in a school and has a school stamp on the inside front cover and has some ink writing on the frontispiece as well as the back inside cover. The pages are clean and the binding is tight. Some little artist also drew characters from some of the stories on the front cover (see photos).
A fun book for your early reader.
