There were 36 book in total in the Key Words reading scheme – the Peter and Jane books. Each of 12 levels was divided into three: a, b and c. The ‘a’ books introduced new vocabularly which was reinforced in the ‘b’ books while the ‘c’ books tended to focus on writing, spelling and phonics. Book 6b We Like to Help was first published in 1965. It was written by William Murray and illustrated by Martin Aitchison. At some point in the late 1960s or very early 70s the decision was made to issue most of the books in this series in Welsh. The first 10 of the ‘a’ and ‘b’ books were thus published but not, I believe, the ‘c’ books.
This matt copy of 4a is the original 1960s version. It is in fair to good condition with heavy wear especially to the edges and the spine although it’s ‘structurally sound’. Inside it’s a pretty good copy – there’s an inscription on the front endpapers (Sian has inscribed her name) but the reading pages are in good condition – used but not abused. The book is probably a first edition (Welsh) – it has no price on it, either inside or on the back.
