Two vintage children's books for Mother's Day: We Help Mommy, a Little Golden Book from 1959, and What Do Mother's Do?, a Whitman Small World Library Book from 1966.

These two books, while more worn than I prefer for items featured on Nickadizzy, just went together so well for a Mother's Day gift that I opted to put them out anyway, albeit at a low price, despite their wear -- they are just so perfect together.

What Do Mothers Do?, while a bit sexist, has great illustrations and great coloration in dark pastel colors. The paper is relatively thin, so these pages show the wrinkles of repeated turning -- looks like this one was read a lot. It's a tall book at 11-1/2 inches x 9-1/2. Note it has some deterioration on the spine.

The cute little 50s Little Golden Book We Help Mommy has some wear, with the bottom having a small dent that runs throughout each page. There are no tears or rips, but the page bottoms are rough -- again, this appears to have been well read.

This is a charming set and because of that I'll forgo any sarcasm or absurdist humor, which is difficult because the little girl's hair in What Do Mothers Do is actually green.

What a nice vintage gift for mom, and like all Nickadizzy books and ephemera, each book will be protected in an archive-approved clear plastic sleeve.
