The Rooster Crows A Book of American Rhymes and Jingles

This book by Maud and Miska Petersham is a wonder for the eyes. I bought the Thirteenth Printing 1966 , The Macmillan Company Publisher. Every other illustration is drawn in these muted colors. I Googleg this fine husband and wife team and found several other books by them. The book was a diamond in the rough, because it was scuffed up and dirty on the outside. I am glad I opened the cover!


  1. I'm sure you're old copy is cooler than the new one in the give!

  2. I bet that book is just full of lovely illustrations! I've been buying alot of old books just for the illustrations inside them lately. I like to pull them out every once in a while and just look at them!
