Submitter: We are a technical college library and are weeding our Early Childhood Education collection comprised mainly of picture books. I came upon this title in my report and wasn’t sure I was reading it correctly. I went to the bib record, and, yes, that was the title. The subject listed in the bib was “Blood – juvenile literature.” Curiosity got the best of me and I pulled the book. I just about died when I saw the cover. It looks like we acquired the title in 1975 and it has apparently only circulated three times – 1984, 1988, and 2010. I had to share this little gem.
Holly: So glad you did! It’s so vintage-chic I can’t even stand it! The crayon drawings, the happy faces painted on the corpuscles, the little shorts and hats they are wearing…it’s all very 1960s. It’s mostly useless in a technical college library without an Early Childhood Education program, so good call on weeding it there, Submitter.
