Little Corpuscle

Little Corpuscle coverLittle Corpuscle: A Story About Blood
Kidder
1965

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.

Just for kicks, enjoy “Do The Circulation” from Schoolhouse Rock!
