Bank Street Publications

Archivist and Special Collections Librarian Lindsey Wyckoff has put together a very interesting exhibition of Bank Street publications from the 1970’s.

Below is the original text for a gameboard called InterAct kits. It still sounds like an engaging product and very “Bank Street” with nice buzzwords like “participatory,” and “produce his (or her) own original stories.” And, the price of $8:00 is an absolute steal.

Learning Games

The Publications/Communications Division has produced three game-book kits for adults and children to share. Each of these InterAct kits contains a participatory read-aloud book, a gameboard which depicts the setting of the story in rich detail, and dramatic play punch-out characters with which the child may actively follow the events of the story on the gameboard, or produce his own original stories.

The InterAct kits are published and distributed by Intelicor Products and Services, and can be purchased for about eight dollars at the College Bookstore. A great holiday season gift for ages three to ninety-three.

Inside Outside Bankstreet Volume 2, Number 1, Fall 1975

For those who are new to Bank Street, the College Bookstore use to be in the lobby. Please contact Archivist & Special Collections Librarian Lindsey Wyckoff with any questions.
