    I think My Book of Bible Stories came out when I was in first grade. So, yeah, that was the "family study" book when I was 5 years old.

    I remember those pictures.

    Still Totally ADD,

    What kind of people think up this shit?

    The Freddy Franz's of this world. He ghost wrote many of the publications of that era.

    I also remember the statement about people having their eyes and tongues waste away because they didn't believe in 1914. I think it was located a page or two from the pretty pictures.

    I remember when I was 12 years old I was home alone on a Saturday morning watching cartoons when a small earthquake hit our area in central IL. I thought I was going to die like those kids in the book. I hate that book for the memories I am having now. Still Totally ADD

    greenhornet - I remember that picture so well, as well as the others that predict doom and gloom, great pictures to plant in the memory of children's heads.

    Upon closer inspection I see we are wrong. That is not a little girl with a doll! Notice how it is a matter of perspective. That is another girl/woman down below her. She is not holding the hand of the girl/ supposed dolly, below. Notice also how the "little girl" has breasts. I fear we are all mistaken.
