Remarkable educational kit meant to teach American children about Saudi Arabia and The Arabian American Oil Company (Aramco). It includes a children's book about Saudi Arabia, 10 posters, and a study guide. The kit was issued by Aramco from 1969 into the early 1970s and sent to teachers throughout the United States for use in the classroom.
Getting to know Saudi Arabia is richly illustrated by Haris Petie (1915-?) and tells about the history, religion and nature of the country. The work is part of the Getting to know series, an educational series about different countries, put together by curriculum specialists. The works were revised with each new printing to keep them up-to-date. Aramco included the newest edition in every kit they issued. Since the present copy of Getting to know Saudi Arabia is from 1969, the present kit is likely the first issue.
The corners of the paper wrappers of ad. 1 are slightly scuffed. The posters are folded, as issued. Overall in very good condition.
