WERE THESE ANN and Barry posters hanging up in your classroom?

A set of original posters from the Rainbow Reading programme are now for sale on Adverts.ie, having apparently been decommissioned from classroom use some time ago.

In good condition save for a few marks on edges where they were pinned up.

They show Ann, Barry and their mammy and daddy in a number of everyday circumstances.
