Big Little Books were very popular throughout the 1930's and 1940's and were later replaced with comic books when they were introduced to children and adults. If you love collecting vintage big little type books, these may be a nice addition to your collection. A wonderful gift to give anyone who most likely read these books when they were little kids in the 1940's. Thank you for visiting our shop!
