More Fun with Dick and Jane
(70 pages)
©1986, Marc Gallant

This little booklet 25 years old already, is a humorous look at what America was like in 1986 - Dick and Jane are all grown up now. Starts out showing Dick (playing golf) and Jane (at her blender in the kitchen) and the other main characters in the book. I got a kick out of the Apple Macintosh computer on one of the pages (with 128K RAM) - guess that dates the book enough! This is not a book for children but for a good laugh for adults. Shows a cabbage patch doll instead of the Raggedy Ann doll on one page, expressions such as "awesome," "hurray," "woop-ee," and "phooey"

The book may explain it better:

"More Fun with Dick and Jane is the first primer of the NEW CONTEMPORARY READING SERIES . It follows, after considerable lapse in time, a number of basic pre-primers and primers which you will undoubtedly remember. This new primer, like all previous ones, develops a totally new vocabulary. It also contains words which appear in their colloquial or casual form. This is the first time such informal words have been included in a primer. A good example is "rad" on page 21: "Oh, Brad. Your stunt kite is rad." Readers will also discover words which cannot be found in any ordinary dictionary. Examples include: Yuck; Yip-ee, pooper-scooper; K-car; RAM; user-friendly; GI-Joe; Barbie; Woop-ee; Ra-ta-ta-tat; Ka-boom and Mr. T. While readers are not openly encouraged to use these words frequently it should be recognized that they have become legitimized through common use. "

NF Condition. Looks unused. Inside scans come from identical title, while cover scan is actual book.
