Little Vintage Storybooks
This is the cutest book! The cover is missing and I forgot to take pictures of the title page (which was a total mistake because it has such awesome graphics).
The title for the book is "The Popular Kiddie Picture-Motion Book" by Mary S. Child and with pictures by Violet La Mont.
A Popular Digest Book from 1944. I think the little girl in fifth and sixth pictures looks just like Avery! What do you think Corey?
Another neat thing about this book is on the copyright page is has a little blurb about how this book was manufactured in strict conformity with Government regulations for saving paper. Do any of you out there have a book that says that? I've never seen that before...but I don't have many from the WWII time period. I wonder if this means the book was printed on recycled paper? It definitely has a stiffer feel and has really held up (despite the missing cover) so well!
