"Bubble Baths and Hair Bows" was written by Mallen DeSantis with photographs by Martin Iger. Touting the etiquette and grooming habits every little girl should acquire, this vintage kids book is illustrated with black and white photography throughout. The dust jacket reads, "Do you know how you can be just as lovely as the nicest grown-up you know? By starting out, right now, on the wonderful road to good grooming. Beautiful features are nice to have, but every girl can be prettier just by following a few basic, every-day steps for neatness, cleanliness, and glowing good health."
Published in 1963, this is a true mid-century how to for little girls.
The book is in very good vintage condition and is complete with its dust jacket. The dust jacket is in good/fair condition with tears along the front edges and spine as well as a piece missing from the back. The book has a photographic board front cover and pink board back cover. It is in excellent condition with only very mild bumping at the top corner. The inside pages are clean and the binding is tight.
A great time-capsule exemplifying the education for girls in the 1960's. A out of print book which will surely bring back memories or begin new ones.
