This is a set of seven education activity booklets published by the Coca-Cola Company. Illustrated promotional booklets extolling the "strengths and virtues" of the commercial resources of America. Published after World War II, the "Our America" series was distributed to schools and teachers as an educational supplement. Each booklet had 20 accompanying colorfully illustrated "stamps" which the young student could affix to the corresponding boxes next to the explanatory text. The text itself has the nationalistic overtones of a country reaffirming and rejoicing in it's prosperity. Fascinating and colorful, despite the dark designs on the minds of post-war American school children.
