The last in the original group of 12 titles simultaneously issued to launch the publication of the Little Golden Book series. It is significant as what is probably the first American effort to assemble a group of educational counting rhymes for children. The illustrations are perfectly balanced to create an excellent specimen of this "holy dozen" amongst LBG collectibles. One of the very few of any of these titles still to retain its original dust wrapper, advertising war-bonds with a specific text on the rear inner flap. In unusual mint condition.
