Show & Tell Friday for November 6

For show & tell today, I thought I would share a sweet vintage Thanksgiving booklet for children. This was put out by Ambassador Cards and cost 50¢. My guess is that it is probably from the 1960s. I could not find a copyright date. The sweet drawings and the colors make me think it is from the 60s, or possibly the very early 70s.

Isn't the cover lovely? This is embossed so that the cornucopia, the children, and the fruit all stand out slightly and look real. There are touches of gold, too.

Aren't the drawings just precious?

Some of the pages are in black and white. I had to include this one because of the pilgrims. Sure wish this one was in color.

Since the prayers are for all year round, other seasons are included. I loved this little scene.

These are the last pages in the book. What beautiful childlike innocence and trust is portrayed here. If only all children in our world were allowed to enjoy childhood like the children in these pages...

And that's my Show & Tell for today. To see what others have shared for Show & Tell Friday, head on over to My Romantic Home.

Happy Show & Tell Friday!


  1. How precious! That's a keeper.

  2. I have really enjoyed looking at your collections. This little book reminds me of one I had as a child. I think it may have been one of those books my Mom used when she was teaching me how to read. I sure miss Mom... she just knew how to make everything fall into place. I remember her packing suitcases... we traveled quite a bit... and everything came out of that suitcase with no wrinkles... how did she ever do that? She always had my Dad's clothes pressed and back in their place by Tuesday evening. Monday was washing day you know. It seems as though it was so simple for her, but I don't find it simple at all.

    Love ya,
    Mrs. D
