Some things just are learned as you go along in your craft. This particular series has several books worth about $30. Here ia a series that has always been a collectible. They have been reprinted but don’t let that stop you since the reprints are worth a small chunk of change as well. The pictures are of the 80s editions.

There are several titles in this particular series:

Dos and Don’ts

Book of Manners

Health and Safety


Help the Easter Bunny




All the hardcovers were published by Ideals Publications in the early 80s and the softcover was published in 1989 (Manners). They have been reprinted but the reprints aren’t as valuable and do sell slowly. These seem to do best on eBay though Amazon is better priced.
