This delightful & scarce book is now out-of-print and you would have a hard time finding a copy that was not ex-library. This one is inscribed / autographed by the author on the front yellow end-paper. "Rhymes About Us" by Marchette Chute, illustrated by the author, first edition 1974. A collection of poems about familiar experiences, emotions, and events of childhood, such as getting a new pair of shoes or having a bad day. The dust jacket has some wear and a little staining, otherwise still bright and colorful and not price clipped (original price $4.95). However, it did it's job and the book is in pristine condition. I have now covered the jacket in mylar for further protection. The inscriptions reads "For Brent Deu Pree, with the affectionate best wishes of the author- Marchette Chute". The inside illustrations are very sweet. Ms. Chute is a Benjamin Franklin Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. She previously wrote books for adults.
