Dick and Jane
Rare 1st Dick and Jane series book

With Baby Ray stories. A 1st Edition of the Elson Basic Readers Book One. Very cute stories in this book.  The Go-to-Sleep Story is about Baby Ray, a very popular child many remember.  Charmingly illustrated by well known artist, L. Kate Deal. Stories also include, The North Wind, Johnny-Cake,  The Lambkin, and Three Billy Goats Gruff.  This book does not appear to have been used, there are no names, no marks, the pages are bright clean and crisp.  A gorgeous and very rare copy,  a rare nostalgic part of history and the beginning of the Dick and Jane series.  I did not get a photo of the Baby Ray story, if you would like to see this story, email me.
