Ah, that explains the ready availability of the Elsie & McGuffy reprints in the small bookshops here and the apparently steady demand for pre-60's text books, in fact, the older the better. There are a fair number of individual families here in Northern Ontario who homeschool as well as a large religious community just north of where I live.
Last week I saw reprints of the Dick & Jane series of readers - not the whole books, but thin pbs individually or as a set of 6-8 titles - in one of my fave bookshops. If anybody's really interested I can check on prices & titles but I expect they are readily available on the net.
