a series of UK children’s books used for teaching children to read in the s and 60s, about a girl and a boy whose lives and families were typical of British middle-class people. The books have recently been published again and now include more modern situations, characters, and language. There was an attempt to revive and update Janet & John a few years ago, which doesn't appear to have caught on. The website for the now discontinued new series is here. You have to wonder why anyone bothered to buy the franchise on characters which few parents of pre-school children now remember, then proceeded to completely reinvent them.

The Janet and John books - thank goodness - seem to be coming back into favour once again. Yes, they are old in style, yes, the original illustrations are a touch 'old-fashioned' to some people but to those of my age, 75 plus, they not only bring back some happy memories of a simpler life but intrigue their younger readers who ask about the illustrations and enjoy the response/5(3).

People muddle up Janet and John (which were NOT Ladybird Books) with Peter and Jane - which, of course were. I am old enough to remember both. When I was learning to read, at the end of the s, Peter and Jane must have been the new.
