round the year

i've seen many different work-play book editions...something about this one really called to me though. i think it was the squirrel in an apron illustration above that clinched the deal. a. gladys peck's illustrations are really whimsical and humorous. i do love that squirrel! the spring bunnies are pretty special too. oh, it's electrotyped. here's another work-play book.

i was just given a stack of about 45 of these old kids stories/learning books and am always impressed at the art work, the inside slap sheets and the simple beauty of the font used. them were the days!
