This was a set of 10 Readers from 1936.
Pre-Primer, Primer, and 1-8.
Of course each is progressively more difficult
and increases in vocabulary
(and decreases in illustrations, which is sad.)
These are the gorgeous illustrations
in the Pre-Primer.
I looked up the difference between Primer and Reader.
Reader is synonymous with "book".
The easiest level of reader is a pre-primer. The text is simple and often repetitive and/or predictable when viewing the book's illustrations.
Primer is the next step up from pre-primer in the world of leveled reading. The text remains simple, but sentences are longer and more vocabulary is introduced. Repetition is common, but not to the extent of the pre-primer text. In our modern world, primer level starts at approximately the second half of first grade. But these vintage Primers look pretty advanced for that.
Aren't these illustrations wonderful?
The books are all in vg condition for their age.
If I don't get them sold through ebay,
most of them look interesting enough to sell in my vintage booth.
And these are the cream of the crop.
Two paperback Dick and Jane readers from 1936...
...with the sweetest illustrations.
