I was a precocious reader myself...my dad told me that in kindergarten they gave a reading test...I had no idea...and I was reading at a level several grades above the grade I was in at the time...ALWAYS loved reading...to this day, I'll read a matchbook (BTW, do they still make those things???) if there's no other reading material available...i tell waitresses to leave the menu at the table after they've taken the order...so I'll have something to read.  In parochial school it was John & Mary, 'steadda Dick & Jane...the first word in the book was ..."LOOK"..."LOOK...LOOK...Oh LOOK...LOOK, LOOK, LOOK" (guess ya hadda be really thik not to get the drift...LOOK)...I remember it as if it was just an hour ago...

I got to a point when I didn't need those readers anymore. During my elementary school years, I was already a proficient reader. In the morning when we got our copy of the Los Angeles Times. Then I could whizz by reading the weather forecast and some of the front page stories.

If I'm not mistaken...the children of "hippies" had their own version.

See Dick? See Jane" Can you tell them apart? I can't.
See Dick smoke the pretty flowers?
Fly Dick! Fly!

Made into a movie with Jane Fonda and George Segal in 1977.

In Parochial school it was John & Mary...still had Spot & Puff, though...I remember the first word on the first page..."Look"...then, "Oh Look" - followed on page 3 (or whatever page was next) by "Look, Look, Look".

These books bored me to death!  But for some reason I have a set of them?

"Dick and Jane" readers...

Father and Mother. None of the mom and dad thing.

I believe they also had a cat named Puff.

Sally was their little sister and Spot was, of course, their dog.

"See Spot run. Run, run, run." That's about all I can remember.
