1942 Animal Paint Book

This is such a cute book and I think the drawings are perfect for embroidery.  The book is very tall, and includes a colored picture at the top of each page suggesting how you should paint your picture. It seems strange to me now, but when I was young I had a very “stay in the lines” kind of personality and probably would have painted the picture exactly according to the directions. I’ll keep scanning and posting these pages, because I think all 46 drawings would make darling quilt blocks.
