Many pages have adorable black-and-white photographs.

According to Wikipedia, "Childcraft was created as a sort of encyclopedia for young children. With simple texts and illustrations, the volumes were designed to make learning fun. Each volume addressed different subjects, including literature — such as short stories and poetry, including fairy tales and nursery rhymes — as well as mathematics and the sciences."

This book, with its adorable burnt orange cover with illustrations, measures 7" X 10" with 208 pages in good vintage condition. There is wear on the cover and a few pages in the back have been torn.
