Dick And Dora was a series of primary school reading books, very much like the Janet And John, Peter And Jane or Topsy And Tim series, from the the mids, but they can still be found dog-eared and slightly dusty on the shelves of many modern-day school libraries. They had unique illustrations, I remember, making use of stylistic shading. Nip the dog and Fluff the cat were largely featured in the Dick And Dora books, and remember all of them running together a lot of the time. And because they ran alot like children used to , they got to see a lot of the world and have great adventures together. The Dick And Dora series was so simple compared to today's books, but they really got your imagination going. Log In Sign Up.
I received the most amazing parcel today!! Thank you so much I can't even tell you which I love the most. Buster modeled his jacket he looks very dapper. I will blog about it on Monday. Hugs, Mari. Do you still have a copy of these books available. I would love to purchase one to read to my nephew.
I can vaguely recall books with animals called Nip and Fluff, and children called Dick and Dora, which were the first books I learned to read at school. The progression from simple words to complex ones. The progression from reading to writing. Because she loves books, she is desperate to read. But because repetition is boring, learning to read is turning out to be not as much fun as she thought it would.
