one powerful hour / e-i-e-i-o!

1970
I loved this book!!!
As you can see it is a little worn!!!
Some of the pages are missing.
Wanna know why?
Well, in the olden days, we didn't have a lot of fun baby items to decorate!
the "changing table" was in the closet and to make it interesting for my baby boys, I taped some of the pages on the ceiling above the table. Something fun for them to look at while I changed their CLOTH diapers!!! Yes I washed diapers, no laundry service except me!!!
I have his other books and I can't tell you the hours the boys and I would look at the pictures.
I know they still sell these books, they are classics!


Here's what I did!
Thanks for the memory!!!
