WAS THE FUTURE GREENER IN THE SEVENTIES?
I came across this circa 1974 coloring book a while ago in my parents attic (I stashed a lot of stuff from my childhood up there-thanks mom and dad!) I LOVED this book. Johnny Horizon was like a mentor. What a great message it conveyed about keeping our environment litter free and being mindful of our impact on it. It's so simple yet people still throw crap out of their car windows and loose trash on the curb instead of making sure it's in a secure trash bag or bin. Unfortunately, Johnny didn't fare as well as his contemporaries, Smokey the Bear and Woodsy Owl. Anyway, I thought I'd share some of the better pages with you. And here's a link to Gerald Ford's
