ABC Painting Reading Book, 1934

There are only two pages left to clean up in this book.  It turns out that the child who received this cute book decided to color not only the outline pages, but several of the example pages as well, which I hadn’t noticed at first and which was annoying because the crayon has to be erased and the image is more difficult to clean up in Photoshop.  At least it was crayon and not paint.

I think it’s odd that the illustrators (or maybe the publishers) of these old paint books from the 20s and 30s thought that children needed to be shown how to color the pages, but I’m glad they did because the example pages are usually untouched.  That looks like Benjamin Franklin as the uncle.
