I picked up this piece from an estate sale because I loved the pictures throughout the book, the selection of songs that reminded me of my childhood and the fun fact that instructions for the games that accompany the music were included. There are 29 pages of songs, each on a pastel background of either green, blue, yellow or pink and the accompanying sheet music and song lyrics. 9 of the songs include instructions for the musical games that accompany the piece.

The title page indicates The Big Book of Favorite Songs For Children Selected and Arranged by Dorothy Berliner Commins, Pictures by Alic Schlesinger, Music Drawn by Margaret Brewster. Grosset & Dunlap Publishers New York Copyright, 1951.

This pages inside the book are in very nice condition with only ruffled edges and surface age staining. Page 11 and 12 has scotch tape over a repaired rip on the bottom. The front and back cover have more significant rips and stains. The binding is of black plastic that is broken off from the top and bottom.

Everything about this purchase was A+++! The seller notified me that it was shipped TWENTY MINUTES later and even refunded me some of the shipping cost when it came in lower. As for the quilt itself, it is even better than pictured...the rips were documented but I think I expected it to be MORE beat so now I'm just bummed because is just good enough that I want to use it for more than picnics! It truly is a dream quilt. All of the squares and fabrics are so charming---there isn't any part of it where you think "oh I don't care for this fabric" it is just perfect through and through. Can't believe anyone would give this beauty up! THANK YOU!

It might be weird to be obsessed with a trash can, but I am OBSESSED with this trash can. It was the perfect accent for my otherwise very pink bathroom. Quick to ship and in perfect condition, too! Like new, except vintage. Ideal.

This was a 7 yr anniversary gift. The colors are absolutely gorgeous, and the imperfections of the piece made it all the more symbolic and meaningful. I received it within 48 hrs. We love it!
