The How and Why Program: Hero Unit
(L.J. Bullard Co., 1930)

Abdallah or the Magic Rug and Other Stories.
(Child Play Magazine?, 1929)
Perhaps a title page is missing. Three fables, each with something different. SW has a bet over stripping a man of (all) his clothes--and gets him into a stream. TH has the tortoise dozing across the finish line. FG ...
The Children's Treasury of Classics
(The Children's Press, 1930)
Rountree's illustrations for the six fables included are excellent, including a color plate for TH which is found in three different editions done by The Children's Press and Collins' Clear-Type Press (1932?). The book ...
The Red Book of Children's Stories

Little Folks Delight
(McLoughlin Bros, 1890)
Here is a simple 6½ x 8½ children's book in pictorial boards with a girl washing doll's clothes on the front cover and children rolling a huge ball of snow on the back. Inside is a typical collection of material for ...
