Our first grade reading series featured Dick, Jane, Sally, Spot, Tim, and Puff. The Basic Readers were written by William S. Gray, Dorothy Baruch, and Elizabeth Rider Montgomery and Illustrated by Eleanor Campbell. The picture to the right is from the first book, published in 1946-47 by Scott, Foresman and Company. Remember sitting in the little red chairs in the front of the room for "reading class?"
