SURPRISE FOR SUSAN, 1950...BY KATHRYN HITTE PICTURES BY PELAGIE DOANE
I found this at the Trading Post in town recently....wanted to share it with you all. You are more than welcome to save the pictures I scanned. There were more,but for now I am offering these. It's such a sweet old book,and a cute story. Grandma,grandpa,and daddy try and get Susan to guess the surprise mommy is bringing home for her.
|Susan,thinking it over :)|
In the end she finds out the surprise is a new baby brother! Such things are not kept a secret any longer,not as they once were. My mama says she was always told,as a little girl,the doctor brought the baby to their home in his bag :) She said she didn't know the difference until she was about 12. Just think what a 12 year old may know this day in time,its so sad to me! I long for the innocence of childhood as it once was...I am an old soul indeed! I long for so many of the old ways...I still believe it was a better time in our world.
This was on the inside of the back cover...precious isn't it?
