Condition:  Minor cover and spine wear noted especially around the edges.  Reading for Enjoyment & Pleasant Lands are ex-schoolbooks and therefore have school stamps, writing & noted inside.  There is a name written on the inside cover of Friends About Us.  They are tightly bound & no missing pages are noted.  Small page tears are noted at the bottom of a few pages from years and years of page turning.  The stories (no pun intended) these books could tell. How many children learned to read using these books?  Pleasant Lands shows the most wear inside - there is writing in pencil on a few pages as well as some very old tape repairing a page tear or two.
