The most cheerful school reader ever

Gay Days.
compiled by the Infants’ Reading Committee, Department of Education, New South Wales. No date, but 50-60s by the looks.

Illustrated by Katherine Morris.

I am particularly taken by the illustration of Father’s car on page 24, because Ms Morris has given it the number plate ‘GAY 321’. I admire thoroughness.
