This collectible kids book is in good vintage condition. This is one of those vintage books that was covered with cellophane that is beginning to peel with age. There is some bubbling on the front and back covers and a small section that is peeling at the spine. The top of the spine has a section missing (see photos). The inside pages of the book have bright colors and are very minimally yellowed. A child "scored" some of the illustrations in pencil which has been erased but some of the letters can still be seen on a half dozen or so pages. This does not affect the overall beauty of this book.
The book measures approximately 13 1/4 inches by 9 5/8 inches and will be shipped Media Mail unless otherwise requested.
A lovely vintage children's book for your collection or to read aloud to your little ones.
