Title
 
Janet and John Book One
Description
 
Children at Beech House School, Church Way, Sanderstead, learnt to read using this book in the 1950's. Janet and John books were popular both with teachers and pupils at the time. Since then, however, they have been criticised for portraying life only in white middle class homes and for sexual stereotyping.
