Netherlands: Ot and Sien

The children of the olf fashioned pictures on these Dutch senior stamps are Ot and Sien. Ot is a boy and Sien is a girl and they figure in the first reading books of my parents on the primary school.

On the tabs modern pictures of children in the same situations as Ot and Sien on the stamps. But there is one difference. 

On the tabs are found 4 small bees. Conclusion: after 55 years the Netherlands have bee stamps again.

Note: in the Dutch language I have tried to write the text just as in the first reading books.
