In addition to a host of activities based around Granny's Garden the workbook contains solutions to all the puzzles in the program.

   
Educational Electronic Experiments
 
A Mullard Educational Service publication which gathers together 20 educational experiments previously issued as individual pamphlets. Mullard Ltd was a major British employer and manufacturer of valves and other electronic components until the end of the 1980s.

These are constructional projects for teachers and give an insight into the state of electronics at the start of the 1970s. Many of the components used are very difficult to source today.

The Pirates Reading Scheme
 
Some of the Sheila K McCullagh pirate books from this reading scheme.

These are rapidly becoming sought-after collectors' items, especially if they are in mint or near mint condition. Although fairly readily available to buy on-line several titles appear to be rarer than others.

Not computer related but included because my children loved these books.
