21437 Playtime Whitman2932 Mallet ill

Playtime.

Cute details in these paintings of round faced children, somewhat like Chloe Preston's children but without that wild self-confidence. In view of the mouths and the three upright eyelashes, these paintings are almost certainly by Beatrice Fox Mallet, an English artist who married the French humorist artist Herve Mallet in 1919. Little stories on each page in attractive calligraphy tell of the children's daily occupations: reading, gardening, blowing bubbles.

19765 Who Stole the Bird's Nest, Prang publishers.

Who Stole the Bird's Nest?

Though this lovely lithographed strip would stand just as decoration, it tells a story as well: First the yellow breast discovers her eggs and nest are missing, then she goes from animal to animal asking about her nest, then the birds and animals converge on the school demanding justice, and Mary Green and Alice Neal sympathize. But "a little boy hung down his head/and went and hid behind the bed/for HE stole that pretty nest/ From poor little yellow breast! And he felt so full of shame/He didn't like to tell his name.... No adult moralizing here at all. There were six little books in this series that were also published together in a box as the Christmas Stocking Library.

Farmyard Play  Book. A Panorama. (1940)

Farmyard Play Book. A Panorama. (1940)

Big bright die cut animals, depicted on both sides of these cards and hinged with green cloth tape, so that a whole row of animals can stand up: rooster, rabbit, goat, cat, goose, sheep, dog, pig. It may be time for the fine animals in this lovely old panorama to become a nursery mobile, or the hinges could be repaired. The collectible value, though, is pretty much gone. Note: This book has been sold.

Friendly Farm.Schilling Co. 1945. A Panorama.

Friendly Farm. A Panorama.

The design of this panorama allows for many different pictures: bees, a goose, a turtle, swans, workhorses, a squirrel, a guinea hen, and pigeons as well as the usual characters. The artwork is typical of this sort of book from the 40's, with detailed animals and rather plain backgrounds, but with a horse-drawn buckrake and haywagon. Unfortunately, we do not know the painter of these sweet pictures.
