way back when, before computers and the internet, before audio books and modern technology,

we actually visited our local library!!!


remember Nancy Drew, and the Hardy Boys, and the Bobbsey Twins... how about Betty & Veronica, & Archie & Jughead?

we couldn’t wait for the next book in the series or next comic book episode...


but, perhaps the greatest warm memories and smiles are summoned with the simplest text:

DICK and JANE.

“run dick run”...  “skip jane skip”...  “see spot run”...

how many of us learned to read with them?!...


bring back into your life the innocent “classics” of and about our time...
