Memories Of Old TextBooks......


Memories of old comprehension textbooks and short story books are a part of everyone's childhood. It's Thursday, let's go down memory lane and have some fun.

Here are popular Macmillan textbook stories like..




 'Edet lives in Calabar, he is 8 years old...' 


'Mr and Mrs Salami'...........

'Ali is a boy, Simbi is a girl'........




'Agbo lives in the town of Lagoon....'.......

'Mr Giwa is a shop keeper...'

Even books like 'Eze goes to school', 'Ralia the Sugar girl' etc







I loved Eze goes to school.....

Who remembers any other one and which was your favourite literature textbook back then.

Which ones are being used now?

    4. Awwwwww. All of these names are still fresh in my head.
      There's this module I loved so much in Primary 3 or 4 "Reader".
      The lines I can still remember.... "A few days later, Ada and Nnena were returning home from school when they saw a house on fire. Suddenly, a woman rushed out of the house and she was screaming, my baby, help! My baby....let's call the firemen station on telephone number 999....who will pay the firemen, the woman asked...Madam, we don't have to pay, it is a social service" The lines continues.
      Good memories of old days.

  92. Stella you just made me go weak with this post. How I miss my childhood. I liked Ralia the sugar girl the most.
    Bata bata was ok, but all those rubber sandals and the names we gave them(e.g basket or so).
    Cabin biscuit, okin biscuit, chocomilo, oko baba dudu(hehehehe), caprizone.
    All the TV commercials e.g Pear, panadol, 1st bank, eja express.
    Infact am off to utube to watch old commercials.
    God bless all those who made my childhood fun, and may the soul of those departed continue to rest in peace.I MISS MY MOMMY!
