Justin Ball (simplelibrarian) | 4 comments So when I was a kid my Grandma had a series of books I read a lot. Timeframe is in the 80s possibly very early 90s. It was a collection of books each with different topics about learning or etiquette, stuff like that, it was illustrated. The only thing I can really remember about these books is the back cover of each book was illustration of a fence with the kids hanging on it and painting it. Its not a lot to go on but its all I got!

Maybe Childcraft?

They were issued (with different designs) from the 30s to the 80s.

Justin Ball (simplelibrarian) | 4 comments I don't think so, it doesn't look familiar and I know I'll recognize the back of the book if I see it. I want to say the characters on the back are throughout the book and I when I say its a "learning" book I think its more lighthearted told through stories of the characters.

Amy Adams (amyoadams) | 8 comments Could it have been The Survival Series for Kids like "Get Good Grades!" (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...) or another one of Joy Berry's (http://joyberrybooks.com/en/) series?

Railyn (funky-rat) | 244 comments I think I remember the series you are talking about. By chance were they even slightly religious? I think I remember seeing them in the late 80's at the church I used to attend......
