Illustrated by Eleanor Campbell. Published by the famous Scott Foresman and Company. 1954 Edition. Previous Copyrights 1941, 1946, 1948 and 1953.
As with all vintage readers, the book has the most adorable pictures! The book focuses on Dick, Jane and Sally. And let's not forget their puppy, Spot! There are also appearances by some of their friends, Tom, Tim, Susan and Jack! The front cover features Sally playing ball with Spot.

Excellent condition on this book! Very clean covers with sharp corners. Only light rubbing at corners but no cardboard showing. Pen inscription on front blank page. Pages are very clean, just a light finger smudge here and there. One tiny edge tear at the bottom of one page. No other rips or tears. Very light foxing on the top edge of the pages (when book is closed). A wholesome book that would still be useful today for the homeschooling family!
