My friend gave me this fabulous Ladybird Book - The Story of Newspapers.
Its from the Ladybird Achievements Book series from the late 1960s. Written by W D Siddle, the illustrations are by R Embleton.
Love the illustrations.
I'm a big Ladybird fan :) Not seen that book before. Love the traditional Ladybird family - oh how different the world is today!!
Beautiful book, I have never come across that one before.
My son and daughter think I'm mad! I have kept all the Ladybird books I had as a child and all the ones they had too, despite the lack of any grandchildren on the horizon. They were such a big part of my hildhood and I learnt so much from them.
I especially love the 'What to Look for in' series on seasonal wildlife watching and my Garden Flowers one.
I find these books fascinating!!! I had one called 'The story of clocks' and I love it!x
Great illustrations, as always with Ladybirds. The newspaper business is pretty different these days compared with how it worked when that book was written! xxx
What a great book and I love the 'family' demonstrating what reading the papers looks like.
A wonderful book - such amazing illustrations! Sadly, newspapers are slowly going by the wayside due to the internet, but I still subscribe to my local daily. xo Karen
