I'm looking for the title of a book I loved to read as a young child (late 1970's/early 1980's). It was about an old man who didn't know how to read and didn't think it was important. His wife went out of town, so he had to do the shopping and cooking by himself. Since he couldn't read, he had to guess what things were by their shapes and colors. His box of spaghetti turned out to be waxed paper, his milk, buttermilk, etc. By the end of the story, he realized the importance of reading and wanted to learn how. I checked this book out from my school library all the time during my early elementary years, and would love to find it again so I can share it with my own children. Thanks for any help you can give me!

Thank you for asking AskOPL!
It seems the book you are looking for is called
The Little Old Man Who Could Not Read by Irma Simonton Black, Seymour Fleishman
Unfortunately, we don't have any copies of it at OPL. You could get it through interlibrary loan which charges only for shipping, or at Amazon.com
