“We have been aware of the visual presentation of history in its immediate values for learning, both by children and adults. Your presentations in illustrated history form in color have been tried out by us on several children, and they have read and looked with deep interest, and have said that they enjoyed this type of reading. These issues should be placed in the hands of all children, black and white, and they will learn the facts with less effort…”
