Old School Books · Through The Rainbow

Through The Rainbow

I wonder how many people were introduced to the colour Indigo by this book series?


It started a love affair with all things purple up until the age of 14! These books were used from about 6 – 8 years. The card covers were usually one story, if you were lucky it would be a school story with Elizabeth and Simon ( who had a lovely school, which probably didn’t smell of TCP!)


But the fun started once you had gone through the colours of the rainbow and you reached….Bronze, Silver and Gold. These books were real hardback books, yes, school reading books in hardback ( I was easily pleased as a child – you can tell ) . These books contained about 5 – 8 stories, some folktales and because they were hardback you felt far more grown up taking these reading books home ( it probably helped the books survive longer as well  !)
