The PeePul Pals Book
by Daphne Davis
Illustrated by John Johnson
"PeePul Pals" a Rueben Klamer Creation
1967 Golden Press
This book was hard to photograph since the dolls are photographs, but this little book is too funny not to share.
How come in all the stories the wolf gets boiled in a pot, killed by the woodsman, or blowing himself away with his huffs and puffs. But the fox, well the fox gets to eat the gingerbread man!
I guess they don't say "clever like a wolf" for a reason ;)
Both illustrations from:
Favorite Nursery Tales
Britannica's Pre-School Library
First Adventure's In Learning Program
illustrations from Golden Books copyright 1970
Published in 1941 by The Saalfield Publishing Company
illustrated by Fred D. Lohman and Ethel Hays
It appears that Ethel Hays did all the big color illustrations (as her name is signed on those) and Fred D. Lohman did the smaller black and white illustrations through out the book.
What Do They Say
by Grace Skaar
no publisher info because that page s ripped out :(
I found this book when I was buying a handful of books at a local thrift shop. Even though it is in a sad state, I felt like some of the images are just so good. The funny thing is when I brought the books to check out (all kids books) the lady said they were $2.00 per book. Now I'm not sure about you, but thats a bit crazy to me. I had to point out this book's shape to her and she said it seemed a bit crazy to her, so instead she would sell them to me for $1.00 total. Much better.
As it turns out I do have another Busy Bee playbook!
Busy Bee America Book
A Child Life Playbook
Published by Garden City Books (no date)
This cover says: Giant cut out come to life map of the USA, travel games, puzzles, quizzes, pencil fun. I really wish this would be republished today, so I could get some copies for my youngest son to work on. Most of the stuff inside this book is already done (puzzles dot to dot etc.) But all the cut outs are still intact.
Take The Children
by Dorothy N. King
the inside says Copyright 1951 by Dorothy K. Werblow printed in the USA
I found this book at a thrift shop where all the kid's books are .25cents. I was so excited when I opened it to see all the paper doll characters were inside! It is in wonderful condition and the story is about dropping the children off in the countries they come from. They have little spaces for the dolls to slide into.
Ladushki: Russian Folk Rhymes and Tales for Little Ones

Published in 1971
I love the illustrations in this book. Most are full page and some double page. It was hard to narrow it down, I may have to come back and share some more.
