Retro Vintage Children's Textbook

It's time for a little mid century book love. This book has what it takes and it's a textbook. I am showing more pics than usual - it's just that good. Seven or So is book two in The Basic Health and Safety Program.  Designer John Horton and illustrator Michael Mitchell made a great team - love the illustrations, layout and design in this book! So much so I have ordered the other two books in the series. 

I haven't been able to find any information on John Horton or Michael Mitchell yet, but I will continue looking. If anyone knows about this team, please leave a comment, I would like to know what else these guys did.
