Description

1954 Growing Things by Dr. Frances Horwich and Reinald Werrenrath, Jr.
"This is a story about a sweet potato..."
Cute 1950s illustrations by Ruth Thompson van Tellingen.

Based on the Ding Dong School program on NBC. This book has some bumped corners and chipping to the silver binding as shown.

From Wikipedia:
"Ding Dong School, billed as "the nursery school of the air", was a half-hour children's TV show which began on WNBQ-TV (now WMAQ-TV) in Chicago, Illinois a few months before its four-year run on NBC(albeit still produced in the WNBQ studios). It is the earliest known preschool series to be produced in the United States, predating Romper Room by a year."
