From orange book: “This book introduces children to many of the strange creatures and things that exist on earth and in the waters. It brings to children a better understanding and appreciation of their animal friends, and it will encourage and stimulate their quest for knowledge about little-known facts on other subjects. There are over 400 original drawings, many of them in full, natural colors, to illustrate the eight books included in this volume — Bird, Dogs, Flowers, Insects, Trees, Horses, Fishes and Wild Birds. All are illustrated and written by experts who are well known for their talent and recognized as authorities. Children will read and refer to this volume over and over again, and each time they do, they will learn something new and get still more enjoyment from it.” (1956)

From green book: “This volume introduces children to the world about them. It has been prepared to give children a basic understanding of man’s more important achievements of the past, of what he is achieving right now, and of his hopes for the future. Appropriately, the volume opens with a fascinating section explaining the world’s languages, how they came into being and how they can be understood. Other chapters describe the world’s ancient and modern wonders, its cities, the customs of its peoples, its inventions, industries and sciences. Every page of this world primer for children is beautifully illustrated with original drawings and full color paintings. Written in words that children can easily understand, the book will not only answer their questions about the world about them, but will encourage and stimulate their quest for further knowledge.” (1957)
