More Power '68

Two wonderfully illustrated story highlights from the Scott, Foreman and Company "Open Highways" series of 60's children's books, (as part of their diagnostic and developmental reading program) --this collection in the series titled MORE POWER is full of poetry, games, recipes and stories-- and to me, Margaret Stimson Richardson's "The Seven Little Pifflesniffs" is the stand-out tale here thanks largely to Dick Scott's deliciously fun, stylized art. Connie Elliot's "Pogo Leaves the Circus" performs wonderfully as well with super cute art by Justin Wagner.

I have no leads. But my favorite one is the one where Dad's preparing the drinks. Number three. I love how mad-scientisty it all looks. For the same reason, my second favorite is the page when mom comes home. Actually, I may have developed a new appreciation for the state of my own kitchen.
