I love it! In their cabins up at the Foundation, they have framed stories from the early issues ... it is great to read them.

What fun! Times have definitely changed. Did anybody besides me have trouble figuring out what part of the car that was on page 19? Was it the door handle?

Thanks for sharing, Sue.

Vijaya - Must be wonderful to read those old HL stories in the cabins!  I love old editions of books and magazines and HL is just wonderful!  How neat that they have the stories framed in the cabins. I'm hoping to go to a HL workshop one day and stay in those wonderful cabins.

Ev - I think that part is the car fender. I thought it was the handle too at first. I didn't see it as the fender until I enlarged the page and it stood out to me. :-)

Such fun to read and see this piece of HL history!  How nice of HL to make this first edition available in its entirety for us.

Lovely of you to share! I've been a Highlights fan since I discovered the magazine in my dentist's office when I was still a tiny tot.   :thankyou

This was wonderful to see! Even though I've only had one story published with them, seeing this first issue made me feel as if I'm part (a teeny tiny part) of some long legacy that's helped mold so many children over so many years. My toddlers now have a subscription to HL Hello and love it!

Thanks for sharing this!

Oh, yes, the old stories, yellowed paper gave me goosebumps. I have always loved Highlights -- discovered it as a teenager when I moved to the US. I gave my nieces and nephews subscriptions and now my own children have one. Hello and High Five are really cute.

I've always enjoyed Highlights, and I liked seeing their first issue.  Read Highlights while growing up, and son James did too.

Very cool to see.

Oh wow! Check out the illustration on page 47 that shows kids the proper way to cut a stick with a knife. Ah, how times have changed! Cool to look through this, thanks for the link, Sue!
