Amazingly Adorable MCM Child Book, Shapes, Sam Berman Graphics, 1952 Hardcover, Read Aloud Gift Framing Upcycling Green Orange Graphics

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Adorable vintage children's book called Shapes. Written by Miriam Schlein with pictures by Sam Berman, published 1952 by William Scott, Inc. 32 pages.

Fun way to teach your child about circles, squares, straight lines, curves, and more.

Fabulous graphics in turquoise, orange, black and white.

Amazingly, this book has been bound in backwards so you start at the end. My husband believes that this was done intentionally but I can't imagine why.

All pages are here, clean and strongly bound, just in reverse order.

Great for read aloud, decor, or to upcycle into something new and fun.

Minor age wear to covers, including an array of tiny dots around the P and E of the title.
