(New York: Sam’l Gabriel Sons, N.D.).
An interesting activity book featuring a charming domestic story accompanied by six colour pictures representing the rooms of a typically house. The pictures are printed on glossy paper and accompanied by a pre-pasted sheet featuring various furnishings and such that one is directed to cut out and paste down in the appropriate areas. A charming book to keep little hands and minds busy and surprising to find with so few of the paste-downs cut out. Item #18314
