SOLD...but ask if you want to be on my "wanted" list for this set in the future
COMPLETE SET of AUSTRALIAN PICTORIAL SOCIAL STUDIES
Australian history in *comics strip format, told for children.
HIGHLY recommended by homeschoolers it is very rare to find it in this pristine condition, with clean pages and no writing, scribbles, tears, loose pages, stains etc, which is amazing as it was printed in 1958!
Ideal for reluctant learners...suitable for children and adolescents alike
Each of the twenty-five booklets has a sturdy cardboard cover and approximately 32 pages.
Many of the booklets have a colour, double-paged spread in the middle...either a relevant map or painting.
The two Parents' Guides include crosswords, games, review questions to consolidate learning etc.
They were republished in the 1960s in an inferior format, with a flimsier cover and smaller overall, such as the ones shown here in this excellent review:
another homeschooler recommendation:
Take a look at some reviews/photos of the superb artwork inside...some are the 1960s edition:

Two Mighty Rivers: Son of Pocahontas by Mari Hanes PB EC $7
I loved this book, as well as Pocahontas: True Princess, of which this is the sequel. Recommended for ages over 8...but older teens would probably enjoy it, too.
Readers travel back in time to see Pocahontas' son, Pepsicanough, join forces with a young girl named Jane Poythress to fulfill his mother's dream of peace between her Algonquin tribe and the people of Jamestown.
Follows the life of the son of John Rolfe and Pocohontas, from his youth in Scotland and England through his return to Virginia to his reunion with his Algonquin relatives.
