How and Why Wonder Books

For your perusal, here are a few great covers from the How and Why Wonder Book series from the 1960's. The illustrations are fantastic and I hope that you enjoy them!

I'm heading up to northern Wisconsin tomorrow to spend time with family. On Saturday we will be having a huge family reunion in Chippewa Falls at Irvine Park. We used to go there for family gatherings/celebrations when I was a kid, so it will be nostalgic. 

Have a good and safe Memorial Weekend. I'll be back here on Tuesday.
