This vintage composition book of recitations is a treasure! The antique school notebook's front cover is red, blue and yellow plaid, neatly labeled "Lucile's Recitations, June 9 - 1913." On the inside, Lucile has carefully copied dozens of little poems to memorize and recite. Some are sentimental and some are funny, but they are all wonderful.

It's hard to imagine today's kids writing out poetry to commit to memory and perform when company comes over, but 100 years ago, that's what they did! This is where we get the phrase "I said my piece."

This sweet notebook has 96 pages, and almost all are filled with Lucile's penmanship (sometimes neater than others). The front cover has detached, the back cover is missing, and the last page has a typed page of instructions for pronouncing "The Long Italian A" pasted to it. A frayed bit of pink ribbon barely clings to the spine.

A beautiful piece of nostalgia to enjoy and display! The pages would also be great to scan and use in craft projects.
