Description
 
A unique children's book that features short stories in the form of poetry. Accompanying the poems are images from black and white photographs  (Rudolf Eickemeyer Jr,) illustrating the corresponding story. This book was a family affair, as the photographer Rudolf is the brother of the author, Eva. The front cover has a photograph that has been pasted on. It depicts a young child, seated at a table, playing with toy soldiers. Some of the titles of the original poetry used in the book are: The Dollies' Bed-time, The Doctor's Visit, Childhood's Refuge and A Frustrated Romance. In addition to the poetry, there are three songs as well: The Sand-man, My Sweetheart, and The Gingerbread Man. The songs come with an accompanying score. OCLC 6 Measures 14 1/2" x 9 1/2"..
