  1. My mother-in-law sold World Book for years. All her grandchildren gained much from her love of learning. She made sure each grandchild had access to all the WB resources. One of the most favorite was the poster that had all forms of transportation on one side and farm/city life on the other. I know my two girls enjoyed having these posters hang on their wall. We would find both of them studying these posters at times. My husband and I liked them also and each time we would look at them, we would find something new!
    Now that We have grandchildren we are interested in finding these posters. Do you have any idea where we could find this. Any info on this would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Ok, Lily, I got on, my dad let me, cause remember the S.S. project, I’m gonna give you the details.
    I hope you can post me back, and i hope i get your posts.

  3. OK, Lily, I got your post, I’m glad I did, cause my dad thought that there was something wrong with my account or the computer.
