This is a vintage book titled, GROWING UP, by Karl De Schweinitz. It was written in 1941. It is a sweet book for explaining the “facts of life” to children, as read to by adults. It is simply told with black and white illustrations and photos.

Look at my photos. You can see the condition, table of contents, and sample pages. I tried to wipe down this old book unsuccessfully, and caused the cover to fade. It still is very readable.

You could share this with children, explaining “the Birds and the Bees”, or use the book for paper crafting. It would be fun to make an altered book or scrapbook or junk journal of Growing Up!

Check out my other listings. I have quite a few antique and vintage books, magazines, prints, linens, Christmas things, collectibles, and craft patterns. I will combine shipping for multiple items purchased together, saving you postage costs, if I can.

Please favorite my shop, CUTEJUNKTIQUES. I try to add a variety of interesting things. Thank you!

She packed it with such care that it survived the long journey to Sweden with not a scratch. Thank you so much! It adds so much charm to our little entrance, I really love it!

These little bird houses are adorable. But most people don’t use that particular bulb anymore, LED is what we use. But I improvised. I use a different string on lights & put them through the hole where the is. I used Fairy lites. Turned out great. I recommend & would definitely would buy again.

Prompt delivery, fit very well, and as described. There was a small hole in them that I was unaware of but luckily I work with leather so it's an easy fix. They will go perfectly with the costume I have in mind. :)
